The Genus is named after Charles Bouvard, personal physician to King Louis XIII of France, and also the director of the “Jardin des Plantes”. Originates from Mexico, but it is now widely cultivated, especially in Holland. It is very fragrant, available in Bright white, cream, pink and red. Bouvardia is particularly prone to water loss and should never be left out of water.
