Begonias Frimbriata Red & Yellow Mix
Our begonia fimbriata ‘Red and Yellow Mix’ is a vibrant, joyous duo of uplifting colour, featuring contrasting blooms of rich scarlet red and canary yellow. Each plant bears masses of magnificent blooms for a sensational display. The multi-layered petals are intricately fringed with crinkled edges, adding a delightfully tousled texture. Set against a theatrical backdrop of dark green foliage, each flower dazzles with colourful splendour. These bold blooms will invigorate your container and bedding displays, producing a continuous show for months on end. Perfect for bringing brightness to the summer garden, even when the skies are grey.
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.
