With their asymmetrical leaves, begonias in bloom grow round and full. Begonia tubers have both male and female flowers on the same plant ( the female flowers are recognisable by the triangular thickiening under the bloom).

Begonia Rex varieties, grown almost exclusively for their foliage, have marvellous leaf markings in lime green, silver grey, purple and crimson. What's more, some begonias, like begonia benitochiba (the River Nile begonia) are hardy down to -5C

Why we love Begonias so much

  • Their flowers are resistant to both wet weather and heat.
  • They are durable and long-lasting, blooming all summer and right up to first frosts.
  • Some will bloom non-stop all year round.
  • Begonias are easy to care for and require no dead heading.
  • Many begonias boast not only beautiful flowers but attractive foliage too.

Top Tip: Make Bigger Begonia Blooms

Encourage tuberous begonias to concentrate all their energy into producing big blooms by removing the female flowers with finger scissors or secateurs.
These form on either side of a central male flower - you can tell the difference between the flowers by the winged seed capsule, which only forms at the base of female flowers only. Tie stems to thin canes just under the weight of unfolding blooms. continue to feed weekly with a high potash fertiliser. It makes a big difference to varieties like our begonia parisienne.
