Description
  • Attractive dark leaves with contrasting red undersides
  • Stunning frilled, daisy-like flowers
  • Fabulous red and yellow colouring
Quite unlike any other begonia, Begonia 'Flamenco' has flowers that look like daisies! They are certainly eye-catching, with their red and yellow colourings, and will create a display like no other on the patio. The almost jet black foliage with its contrasting red underside is certainly an added bonus and makes Begonia 'Flamenco' as much a foliage plant as a flowering marvel. Plant this very special begonia in containers in a sunny or part-shaded spot and enjoy a spectacular display all summer. Height and spread: 25cm (10").

How to Grow
Pot up Begonia plug plants into 9cm pots and grow them on in bright, frost-free conditions, away from direct sun. They 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 planting them in their final positions in containers, beds and borders. Choose a sunny or semi shaded position that is protected from strong winds.
More Info
Feed and water plants frequently throughout the growing season taking care not to over-water, as this will cause new flower buds to drop. Deadhead the single female flowers to encourage more of the large double male flowers to be produced. At the end of the growing season the leaves and stems will yellow and fall off naturally. Reduce watering to prevent begonia plants from rotting at this stage. When the stems have all dropped away, dig out the tubers. Clean and dry them before storing them away in peat or sand at 7-15C (45-60F) until they can be replanted next February.
