About this Variety

Begonias are one of the most stunning if not THE most stunning additions to the shade garden. Begonias love growing and blooming in the shade unlike most other flowering plants. Expect to enjoy blooms summer to frost! Begonias come in many different types. The most common cultivated groupings are cane-stemmed, rex-cultorum, rhizomatous, semperflorens, shrublike, tuberous and winter-flowering. We primarily focus on tuberous begonias, which is what the following planting information is in reference to. Tuberous begonias are available in upright growing habits (grown in beds, borders, planters) as well as pendulous, cascading habits (grown in hanging baskets, window boxes and containers). There are endless options in bloom size and color!

Growing Instructions

First, decide where the planted will be located and if the pot needs drainage. Proper drainage is key if you are placing the planter outside. If placing outside, remove the drainage plug(s) from the bottom. Empty about 85% of the medium bag into the pot. Firm and smooth the planting medium. Next, place the bulbs onto the soil, centering them and adding remaining medium on top. Water well, saturating the soil deeply. Continue to saturate soil for the first few days then water as need. Sit back and let mother nature do her thing!

Care Tip

Plants in containers are above soil level and exposed to the elements which make them more prone to freeze damage during the winter than plants planted in the garden. Take extra precautions and overwinter the planter in a protected area (shed or garage) during freezing temperatures (best to provide a winter environment that is one zone hardier than your area). To overwinter: Water plants thoroughly and move borderline-hardy plants into a protected area to increase chance of survival. Because the plant is dormant, light isn't required. Check every few weeks to ensure the planting medium isn't dry. Water sparingly. Overwatering can cause the plants to come out of dormancy. Place planter back outside to restart its cycle when spring and warmer temperatures return!
