Lush as a summer rose, but with a delightful twist, this newcomer to our lineup is sure to have begonia lovers rushing to get as many tubers as their gardens can handle! Amerihybrid Picotee Apricot & Pink Begonia Mix features a stunning blend of apricot and pink blooms, each with a little something extra to endear them to you—a reverse picotee pattern with a delicate, white edge that highlights their richer, deeper shades. The begonia blooms in this mix are huge—5-6" wide, and sometimes even reach 8"! They make lovely displays in hanging baskets, container gardens and window boxes. Like most begonias, the Amerihybrid Picotee thrives in full to part shade.
