Samba Begonia Mix

Samba Begonia Mix

We are pleased to offer this unique blend of shade-loving blooms just right for adding bright color and a bit of fancy flair to the shadowy landscape spaces that need a bit of brightening. Fringed, double flowers in a wonderful mix of pastel hues include pale yellow blushed with pink, yellow blending into pastel orange and pale golden orange with salmon edges. An abundance of 4.5" flowers bloom above the triangular, mid-green leaves, creating a lovely and colorful display in borders, beds, hanging baskets and container gardens. The plants have an exceptionally long flowering period and are very easy to grow and maintain. Performs best in partial to full shade. For repeat blooming year after year, bulbs should be lifted in the fall in zones 3-8. Deer won't bother begonias.
  • Hardiness Zones 3-10
