Begonias

Begonias are much a sign of summer as cookouts and the ice cream truck! Add our flashy red, yellow, pink or orange begonias to your garden. Or, plant in containers for a pretty patio.

We adore begonia bulbs for summer gardens. They leaf and flower in a range of colours, and their tolerance for shade makes them an excellent choice for a variety of placements. Their flowers bloom into whites and warm colours, adding a sense of tropical beauty to a range of growth zones. Add begonia bulbs to the garden for beds of colour amid rich green leaves. In gardens that provide some shade, these beautiful plants thrive in areas with minimal direct sunlight. Whether you place them in baskets or arrange them in beds, begonia bulbs emerge with fresh colours during the warmest months of the year.

Hardy begonias grow well in zones 3 to 10. If you live in zones 3 to 7, be sure to lift them in the autumn seasons to keep them flowering year after year. With this in mind, you may grow planting begonia bulbs in any well-drained soil; just allow about a foot between each plant and plant them about 4 inches deep. Begonia bulbs thrive in shaded areas, and their rich colours make them an excellent choice for those dark pockets of the yard that get half sunlight during the day.

Begonia bulbs come into bloom during the summer months and offer a variety of options for the garden. You may plant them in containers or in beds of their own--many gardeners prefer to separate them into unique bundles of a single varietal. Begonia flowers often stand between six and 12 inches tall but some varieties reach close to two feet, and they provide a base layer of foliage when planted in groups.

Begonias are available in a variety of styles, colors, and shapes - you'll enjoy our picotee and double blooming varieties, as well as our cascading begonias for hanging baskets!

Tips & Growing Instructions

In cold areas, start the tubers indoors about 6 weeks before you anticipate the last frost. Plant the tuber in potting soil, round side down, about 1" below the surface. Water well and then keep the soil moist but not soggy. Keep in a warm, semi-shady area. When all danger of frost has passed, transplant outdoors being careful not to disturb the roots.Keep in a warm, semi-shady area. When all danger of frost has passed, transplant outdoors being careful not to disturb the roots.


Begonia In the garden, begonias need rich, porous, well-drained soil and shelter from wind. Space 12" apart in shade or partial shade. Keep the soil evenly moist and fertilize at least once a month. Tuberous begonias should be dug and immediately given a bath after they are lifted. They should be stored over the winter in shallow, open trays. If there may be mice or other rodents, place a wire covering over the open trays. Hardy in Zone 10.
