San Francisco Begonia

San Francisco Begonia

Bright, Bold Color!

Begonia lovers, rejoice! This long-blooming, heat tolerant trailing variety is a must have this season! San Francisco is noted for its salmon blooms that are long and slender, just like the winding streets of the famous city.

These elegant blooms drop down in a waterfall-like form, making them an absolute perfect choice for hanging baskets. The long, slender petals open wide to form blooms that reach 2 to 5 inches wide! You won't be disappointed in this begonia's flower power!

Even after the final blooms have been nipped by the frost, San Francisco's foliage keeps up the interest, and makes this a stand out plant in any container. It looks great spilling over the edges of a hanging basket!

In cooler climates, San Francisco enjoys plenty of sunshine, and a little afternoon shade further south. It's a very heat tolerant plant, and can adapt well to drought if pampered in the spring. It even bounces back from heavy winds and rain.

When your plants arrive, remove all the packaging material and set them outdoors, in a shaded location protected from strong winds. Give them a long drink of water, and let them rest for a day or two. They are now ready to transplant wherever you want them to grow!

You will love how tireless a bloomer San Francisco really is -- not to mention its new color! Give this trailing begonia a try in baskets and tall planters this season! Pack of three plants in 4-inch pots.
