Begonias Pendula White
A tumbling avalanche of snow-white blooms spill endlessly from pendula begonia ‘Cascade White’ throughout summer.
Frilled, fully double blooms elegantly hang on soft-pink, draping stalks from a bed of bright green foliage. Occasional flowers appear in simple, single form, which serve to enhance the beauty and intrigue of this delightful begonia.
Perfect for baskets and containers in semi-shade. Fill a large white, or vintage metal urn for a fresh, chic display from May until October.
Begonia tubers should be started in March or April, in a cold frame or greenhouse.
Choose a pot with a 20cm diameter and several holes in the bottom for drainage. Fill it with rich, good quality compost, leaving a 5cm gap from the rim. Plant your Begonia tuber with the hollow side uppermost, ensuring it sits 2.5cm below the soil surface. Water consistently, keeping the soil evenly moist, but not waterlogged. Place the pot undercover, in a shaded area with temperatures around 18-24°C and shoots will soon start to appear.
Once the danger of frost has passed, usually around the beginning of June, Begonias can be planted out.
Begonias will reach a height of 30-45cm, boasting vibrant, showy blooms ideal for patio containers and hanging baskets.
In October, lift the tubers, remove faded foliage and store in a frost-free place, in dry compost or wood shavings.
