Begonias, not our usual choice of annuals.
One of our Ladybird customers gave a whole box of corms which we could not bear to throw away. So helen has potted them up and we are offering them as annuals at £2.00 for a 1l pot just to cover some of our costs.
We cannot be sure what Begonia they are until they start to come up, so we will clarify this later!
Begonia are part of the family Begoniaceae, with more than 1,800 different plant species. They are are native to moist subtropical and tropical climates. Popular as house plants since the 80s.
Wax begonias have succulent stems; shiny, rounded, green or reddish-brown leaves and grow in a mounded habit. They bloom with 1-1/2-inch single or double flowers in shades of red, pink, or white.
Tuberous begonias come in two forms, either upright or trailing, and have green or burgundy leaves.
