Common Name: Bedding Begonia
Availabilty: In Stock
Begonias are highly prized for their bright, cheery mixed flowers and patterned succulent-like leaves... offering prolific dainty flowers in varying pink tones and whites with yellow centres and almost year round blooms. The dense foliage is bright green with a hot pink border... can you say 'Wow'?This fast growing flowering annual is low maintenance and adaptable to most conditions, but prefers a moist base and regular watering. Beautiful in borders, hanging baskets, mixed beds, container planting, mass planting and indoor gardening.
Growing 150 mm - 300 mm tall; small and sun hardy, these little guys easily fill in areas of the garden that need a splash of colour, and are gorgeous when planted en masse. Happy in full sun, but in exceptionally hot areas ensure that afternoon shade is available as they suffer in extreme heat. Occasional deadheading is effective for maintaining a lush and compact growth. A pretty little houseplant in brightly lit indoor areas, or consider bringing potted specimens indoors in the cool months in especially cold temperatures.
Humidity tolerant. Frost sensitive. Most well drained soils, prefers moist base. Prefers moist soils (but not too wet). Full sun to part shade.
