Begonia Tuberous Double Red Begonia Tuberosa is a showy, heavy blooming annual flower. This compact - only 12 inches tall, bushy flower is started from Begonia seeds, and once mature Red Begonia blooms with extra large, fully double, red flowers over shrub-like, textured, dark-green foliage. Begonia blooms throughout the summer and thrives in shady spots where only few other showy flowers can provide the same performance. The fragrant Begonia blooms attract hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees.
Begonia Tuberous Double Red is used in various garden applications such as flower beds and borders. Red Begonia is an outstanding annual flower that can be also planted as a container plant on patios and porches, or can be grown in hanging baskets. Begonia Tuberosa seeds must be started indoors, and the mature plant does not like a direct sun, so it has to be shaded during most of the day. Begonia grows best in partial sun or partial shade and requires rich, well-drained soil. The regular watering must be provided.
