Description

This prima donna certainly takes centre stage with massive, frilly blooms which can reach up to 20cm/8 inches in diameter.  Known as the ‘Dinnerplate Begonia’ due to the incredible size of its flowers, the huge blooms are held on strong, thick stems which keeps them upright and wind resistant. Flowers last for a long time and this vigorous plant will keep blooming from June until October.

Begonia ‘Prima Donna Sunburst’ has stunning, apricot yellow blooms with a red picotee edge.

Height 35cm (14”). Spread: 45cm (18”).


5 begonia tubers (KC4041)

How to Grow
Tubers are ideal for containers, making a larger plant in the first year than plug plants or growing from seed. From February, start begonia tubers off in well-drained, moist compost in a warm, frost-free position in bright light. When planting begonia tubers, position them just below the compost surface with the indented side facing upwards. When begonia plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days, before planting them in their final positions. 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 faded blooms regularly to encourage more vibrant begonia flowers to be produced and to extend the flowering period. 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 7-15°C (45-60°F) until they can be replanted next February.
