Yes! A Hardy begonia! Long, olive green, deeply-veined foliage is held beneath fragrant light pink flowers 3cm wide in summer. Plant in moisture retentive but freely draining soil and mulch well with bark for more frost protection. This Begonia, that can be grown outside all the year around, has top growth hardy to minus 2 degrees C but the tuberous roots have always survived every winter, even at minus 10C here!
Sowing advice: For best results, sow seeds in good light at any time onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. We recommend germinating at 15 to 20 degrees C. Seeds should ideally germinate in between 2 and 6 weeks although they make take considerably longer. Pot on seedlings before finally planting out into a container or a well-drained spot.
