It’s a whole new day for Begonia! Part Angel Wing, part Fibrous Begonia, the new BIG? series is simply unique — it’s the quickest-blooming, largest, most vigorous Begonia the world has ever seen. And this splendid color (a rich rose, a bit different from the typical Begonia primary shades!) combines wonderfully with the large, elegant bronze foliage. If it’s time to update the Begonia basket, let BIG? lead the way!
These color-drenched oval 2 1/2-inch flowers appear in great clusters, while the bronze foliage is glossy and oversized, with nicely pointed tips. BIG? Rose reaches about 20 inches high and blooms all summer in sun or shade. What a change from fussy older varieties!
Perfect for mass landscaping, bedding, edging, or containers, the BIG? Begonias germinate very easily and are self-cleaning throughout their long, lovely summer season. Released exactly 100 years after the first-ever Begonia hybrid, BIG? is a giant leap forward! Space plants 12 to 15 inches apart for dense coverage. Be sure to try Red with Bronze Leaf and Red with Green Leaf as well. Pkt is 15 seeds.
