When to Buy Begonias Bulbs

Tuberous begonias are easy to buy online, and begonias for sale online are typically shipped as tubers. You'll place these tubers in the ground after the last frost date, or you can start them indoors about six weeks before that final frost. So, the best time to buy begonia bulbs is in the spring. Like to do a little pre-planning? No problem! Breck's will ship your bulbs to you at just the right time to plant.

What are Tuberous Begonias?

Tuberous begonias are large, long-lasting plants, featuring bright, frilly, and impactful flowers. Much like their annual counterparts, tuberous begonias are beloved for their adaptability to shade and to containers. Tuberous begonias tend to have large flowers that ascend from a lush plant, making them absolute stars in the world of hanging baskets or raised planters. You can buy begonias in a variety of shades and patterns, including exciting picotee begonias and marginata begonias with beautiful edges. Choosing tuberous begonias is an investment in your garden.

Do Begonia Bulbs Come Back Every Year?

There are two kinds of begonias you can buy: annual begonias and tuberous begonias. The kind that grows from tubers—the begonias you can buy from Breck's—are perennials that come back year after year.

Wax begonias or bedding begonias are annuals. While they have a different appearance, they are related to perennial begonias. Wax begonias have waxy leaves and petals, with small flowers surrounding a bright, ball-shaped center. Wax begonias are great shade plants, but they don't come back every year. They're also not excellent shippers. Pick up these pot-filling annuals at your local garden center to fill in planters and bare patches for a single season.

For longer-lasting blooms, choose our tuberous begonias for sale! Tuberous begonias also tend to have bigger blooms and bolder forms than wax begonias. These blooms can really bring your begonias to the next level.
