The roots of these beauties are not true bulbs, as the name tells you. Tuberous begonia roots are, obviously, tubers. They require shade and regular feeding, so most people grow them in patio pots, window boxes, or other places where you can tend them carefully. They're also perfectly happy in the ground in shady areas as long as the soil is rich and well-watered. The blooms can reach a spectacular 5 or 6" across, on short plants that are rarely over a foot tall. Many gardeners start the plants inside in pots, and they can be taken in and enjoyed as houseplants when frost threatens in the fall.
This shade-loving beauty ignites the late garden with fiery orange, double blooms. Growing to be only 10-12” tall, Double Orange is the perfect choice for small-space gardens or containers. Imagine these in a window box with pink and white varieties! Gardeners enjoy Begonia blooms throughout the US, although they do act as annuals in colder hardiness zones. We recommend planting these double Begonias in rich soil and giving them a regular feeding. If you don’t have the best soil, you can amend it or plant these beauties in containers, where it is easier to control soil type. Here at American Meadows, we plant Begonias in every shady spot available. They are such a delight to the late season garden! More Details
