Description

Big flowers for a big show

Not long ago, our team of buyers Took our annual tour of test gardens Around Noordwijkerhout, our home Base here in Holland. About a two hour Drive away in neighbouring Belgium, we discovered something That really took our breath away!

Prima donna begonias are some Of the most prolific and largest begonia Flowers we have ever seen, even After so many years in the business. Of course, when we saw them, we Instantly realized how popular they Could become in the united states. We couldn't wait to make them available To our customers who appreciate Something a little more dramatic.

Give these lovely giants centre stage In your garden, and you'll soon see Why we call them 'prima donna' as They steal the limelight from all other shade-growing perennials!

Deserve Centre Stage in Your Garden

Exquisite Colours
The eye-catching hues of our Prima Donna Begonias are unlike anything you have ever seen. An incredible mix of soft solid colours and luscious two toned combinations will add a European flavour to your garden scene.

Outstanding Value
Breck's is the leading exporter of Holland's finest bulbs and plants for American gardens. Because we export in such large quantities, we can afford to offer you a very competitive price for these fabulous plants.

Easy to Grow!
Begonias bloom all summer and fall until the first frost, and thrive without being pampered. They are ideal for partial or full shade, but may even be grown in sun. Plant 1" deep (just below the surface) in moist soil with the hollow side up. In beds and borders, plant tubers about 10" apart. For early blooming, start your begonias indoors and transplant when the plants are 2-3" high and danger of frost has passed. Pinch off side buds to produce larger blooms. During the summer, don't worry about pruning the many blossoms because when new blooms appear, old ones simply drop off! If you live in a cold climate, lift and store the tubers in a dry, dark and frost-free location for winter. Replant in the spring for an all-new explosion of colour.

Giant 6-8" ruffled double blooms stand out atop strong 16-20" stems. In fact, these are the very largest of all upright begonias. Each bloom offers double the usual number of flower petals, all elegantly ruffled, spiraling toward a tight whirl of intense colour at the centre. These flowers are utterly charming in containers of all types — pots, pedestal planters, window boxes, whiskey barrels—and add extra flair around the patio, walkways or under shady trees.
