Sensational Begonias

Begonias are ideal for containers and bloom continuously from summer to fall. Available in several forms: single or double, upright or cascading, rose form or fringed.

Their blooms are large, measuring up to six inches (15 cm) across.

Colours range from strong solid shades, soft glowing pastels or contrasting bicolours with picotee edging.

Find the begonia that’s right for you – choose upright double begonias for terrace and patio containers, window boxes, and garden beds. For hanging baskets and urn planters, cascading pendula varieties.
