Fibrous Begonia (Begonia Semperflorens Summer Rainbow) 2000 seeds (#1714)

Wax or fibrous begonias are classic bedding plants because they are beautiful all season and easy to grow. Commonly grown as annuals.
F2 hybrid. Low growing and bushy, wax begonias have lustrous, succulent leaves. Blooms appear continuously, so long as growing conditions are favorable, and may be red, white, pink or rose.
Plant these begonias in locations with partial sun and well drained, but evenly moist, fertile soil. They look super in containers, hanging baskets and shaded borders. In colder zones, begonias can be brought indoors to overwinter.
