Product Description

Do you have a shady area that needs a splash of color? Try this gorgeous double begonia! With bright yellow blooms which can reach up to 4" across, these traditionally styled begonias will be sure to catch the eye of visitors to your shade garden. Hummingbirds like these! These tubers can also be started early indoors for even larger, more vigorously growing plants! Begonias have been favored for shade gardens for years and the large-flowered tuberous varieties represent royal blood. These have much bigger blooms and greater plant strength than the seed-grown types, which tend to be small, fragile and often a bit fussy looking. Like true queens, tuberous begonias aren't inclined to relinquish their throne after a single season. These tubers are easy to lift and store for many years of magnificent displays. Outdoor Beds Find a location where the soil drains well. If there are still water puddles 5-6 hours after a hard rain, scout out another site. Or amend the soil with the addition of organic material to raise the level 2"-3" to improve the drainage. Peat moss, compost, ground bark or decomposed manure all work well and are widely available. While begonias prefer a slightly moist soil, they wiill not survive in soggy soil. Site your begonias where they will receive partial shade. The hotter your growing region, the more shade they prefer.
