Really Stands Up to Heat and Drought!

Great for baskets and planters!
Prepare to be dazzled by the big, wide-open blooms, handsome foliage, and nonstop flowering of this new trailing Begonia! Santa Cruz™ Sunset is an exciting choice for any climate, especially hot, long-summer areas that have stressed other Begonias. With blooms from spring until frost, it's ready to dazzle in baskets and planters!

The flowers are a rich shade of orange-red and borne by the many, many dozen on this lush, mounding trailer. They open 2 to 3 inches wide, extending fully 5 inches wide at their apex, then dropping to the ground, only to be replaced by more. The bloom season begins in late spring in most areas and continues throughout summer and fall, halting only when the plant is nipped back by frost.

Santa Cruz™ Sunset would be good-looking even if it never flowered, though. The leaves are large, arrow-shaped, and neatly serrated, with pronounced, uniform veins that make them look almost pleated. Dark green and very abundant, they add a tropical look to this annual plant.

Set this Begonia in full sun in cool climates, but give it a bit of afternoon shade farther south and west. It is primarily known for its heat tolerance, but given a little pampering in spring, it is quite resistant to drought, too. And you'll love how quickly it bounces back from rainstorms and wind!

Santa Cruz™ Sunset is the Begonia you've been looking for to fill those hot, dry spots where few other plants are happy! You'll love the festive look and nonstop flowering of this beauty!

Beautiful container plant
Nan from SC wrote (January 28, 2014):
I bought these last year for growing in containers with established cannas around the pool. I was not disappointed with the lush flowering and deep color, however, did not get the trailing as described. Mine trailed 6-8 inches out of the container but still grew full and had many flowers. Planted in spring and they continued flowering until late September in Columbia SC in full sun with drip line daily watering.
