Begonia Pendula Yellow
Lemon-yellow, pom-pom blooms dangle gracefully from arching pink stems, on beautiful pendula begonia ‘Cascade Yellow’. The fluffy, double flowers are occasionally interspersed with single forms, like tiny silk handkerchiefs. Outer petals appear flushed blush-pink which enhance the refreshing, summery yellow tones.
Perfect for cheerful and illuminating displays in pots, hanging baskets and urns. Begonias are popular, long-lasting and thrive in part-shade, blooming in abundance from late spring until first frosts in autumn.
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.
