Begonia Tuberous Double White Begonia Tuberosa is a versatile, compact annual plant. Begonia seeds are started indoors, and the plant grows up to 12 inches producing extra large, double, white flowers over bushy, textured green foliage. White Begonia blooms from mid summer through the entire season providing a fantastic display of pure-white blooms and attracting hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees.
Begonia Tuberous Double White is planted in flower beds and it is useful as a border plant for the low light borders. The Begonia flower looks gorgeous in containers, pots, and hanging baskets. Begonia Tuberosa seeds should not be covered, because they need light to germinate. The Begonia plant can adapt to virtually any soil, and it likes to grow in indirect light that makes this robust flowering annual an excellent choice for shady areas of the garden where many flowers do not perform well. Good drainage is an essential condition for growing Begonia Tuberous.
