Begonia 'Fragrant Falls Improved™ - Apricot Delight'

Half-hardy Perennial

  • Very distinctive fragrance
  • Scents develop through the day
  • Each colour has a different perfume

A dramatic improvement on its predecessor, Begonia 'Fragrant Falls Improved' has more colour, more flowers and more fragrance. The fully double blooms of 'Apricot Delight' are beautifully perfumed and remain fragrant whatever the weather. Like all begonias, 'Fragrant Falls Improved' has astonishing staying power, flowering throughout summer and well into autumn. These magnificent trailing begonias are perfect for adding long lasting, vibrant colour to those tricky shady areas. Spectacular in baskets, flower pouches and window boxes where their perfume can be truly appreciated. Height and spread: 30cm (12").


Culinary note: Add the bright coloured petals to sandwiches or salads for a light lemon taste and crisp texture. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Begonia plugs can be planted straight into flower pouches but are best potted on first and grown on in bright, frost-free conditions if they are to be displayed in baskets, window boxes, pots and beds. Begonia plants can be transplanted into their final containers once they have increased in size. When all risk of frost has passed, acclimatise begonia plants to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days, before placing them in their final positions. Choose a sunny or semi shaded position that is protected from strong winds.
Feed and water Begonia plants frequently throughout the growing season taking care not to over-water, as this will cause new begonia flower buds to drop. Deadhead faded begonia flowers regularly to extend the flowering period and encourage more blooms to be produced.

  1. Recommended purchase

    By Keith Fallon 07-04-2017

    First time of buying tubers and have no idea what I was worried about, all tubers are now in leaf and looking very healthy. Bought quite a few tubers of different kinds and can't wait to see them in their colourful glory this summer. One of my favourite plants and buying the tubers meant I have lots more this year, than previous years where I have limited my purchases of them from local garden centres. Very impressed and will repeat this next year without doubt.
