Description

Perfect for mass landscaping, bedding, edging, or containers

It's a whole new day for begonia. Part angel wing, part fibrous begonia, the new BIG™ series is simply unique—it's the quickest-blooming, largest, most vigorous begonia the world has ever seen. And this splendid color (a fire-engine bright crimson-red) combines wonderfully with the large, succulent-looking bright green foliage. If it's time to update the begonia basket, let BIG™ lead the way.

These color-drenched oval 2½-inch flowers appear in great clusters, while the green foliage is glossy and oversized, with nicely pointed tips. BIG™ Rose reaches about 20 inches high and blooms all summer in sun or shade. What a change from fussy older varieties.

Perfect for mass landscaping, bedding, edging, or containers, the BIG™ begonias germinate very easily and are self-cleaning throughout their long, lovely summer season. Released exactly 100 years after the first-ever begonia hybrid, BIG™ is a giant leap forward.

Space plants 12 to 15 inches apart apart for dense coverage.

This seed comes as a "pellet". "Pelleted" seeds are small seeds that have been clay-coated to make them larger and more uniform in size and shape, making them easier to handle when planting.

Great germination!

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

It looks like we’ll over 80% are sprouting, germinating, after not quite two weeks. I purchased both of the big red begonias green and dark leafed, both are showing little leaves. Keeping them at 70f and 12 hours under led grow lights covered with plastic, much better than I hoped for.

Great germination

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

Really appreciate the pelleted seed. Huge improvement over the 1/4t. of dust (seed) that used to be all that was available and nearly impossible to handle. 100% germination! Nothing wasted.
