Origin & History:
Begonias, originating from tropical and subtropical regions, have a rich history dating back hundreds of years. The tuberous begonias, particularly the Nonstop Series, are cherished for their abundant and prolonged blooms. The "Deep Rose" variety adds a touch of elegance with its rich coloration, standing out distinctly in the vast family of begonias.
The Tuberous Begonia in Deep Rose is not just a treat for the eyes. Its striking flowers, with their deep rose hue, make it an excellent choice for ornamental displays, either as a solitary plant or combined with other floral varieties. Moreover, their prolonged bloom time ensures that gardens, patios, and balconies remain vibrant for most of the year. They are also a favorite in floral arrangements, adding a luxurious touch to bouquets.
Growing Habits & Planting Instructions:
For best results, start the pelleted seeds indoors 16-20 weeks before the last expected frost. Plant the pellets shallowly, ensuring they are not buried too deep. They require a moist, well-draining soil mix and should be kept in a warm location with indirect light. Once seedlings emerge and grow strong enough, they can be transplanted to larger pots or directly outside in cooler climates after the danger of frost has passed. While they can handle a bit of morning sun, they thrive in partial to full shade. Water regularly, ensuring the soil is consistently moist but not waterlogged. Deadhead spent blooms to encourage continuous flowering.
