The scoop on Begonia Rose Form Red

This begonia flowers in a brilliant, true red and pairs beautifully with picotee begonia Scarlett O'Hara. (Click on the image for a less fuzzy version.)

Rose form tuberous begonias are smooth petaled, symmetrical, reliably double and decidedly three dimensional. They are also spectacular at 4-8". These bulbs are large (2-2.5" diameter) and remarkably well-priced. Expect a show stopping performance this season and into the future, if you choose to save the bulbs. You won't be disappointed.

Why Grow Rose/Double Flower Form Begonias?

  • Stellar, fully double flowers in half day shade
  • Long flowering period, summer into fall
