These plants prosper in sun or shade, are dry tolerant and don’t mind poor soils, how good is that! Begonia DeluXXe Rose is lovely and compact with big, pretty rose coloured flowers forever and a day, well, from late spring to autumn, even longer in some climates. The plants are upright, bushy and well branched with handsome glossy leaves.
Begonia BIG Deluxxe are fabulous in pots on patios, hanging baskets or even as indoor plants. They settle in quickly and will soon be spilling over the edge of the container like a giant ice cream.
Begonia BIG Deluxxe can also be grown in the garden, and their commanding size and floriferous nature can create quite a splash in your beds.
Begonia BIG Deluxxe is an improved cultivar that is self cleaning so you don’t need to do anything but water occasionally, so easy! If you did want to pick a few flowers, they are edible, so you can use them as a spunky garnish.
If you have grown BIG Begonias before, BIG DeluXXe is up to 25% bigger than that!
Plant in moderately fertile to humus rich, moist, well drained soil. Water to establish and keep moist during flowering for best results. Adding a regular dose of diluted liquid fertiliser to pots will bring on the best bloom.
