Tuberous Begonia Seeds

Begonia tuberhybrida

The flowers of Illumination Apricot Shades begonia feature delicate, ruffled petals in scrumptious pale peach to deep cantaloupe shades.

Begonias in the Illumination series are the best begonias to grow in hanging baskets - the large, semi to fully double flowers are especially gorgeous when spilling down from above. The easy to grow, heat tolerant plants need moist soil and filtered shade.
