Wax Begonia (Begonia Semperflorens Rose) - Begonia seeds are very small, but they are also very rewarding to grow! Wax Begonias are prized as a summer bedding annual because they have continual blooms and uniformity in their size. This wax Begonia has extremely gorgeous rose colored flowers and rich green leaves. It has an abundance of flowers throughout the summer with thick and waxy foliage. Begonia Semperflorens is an excellent choice for mass ground bed plantings in a mixture of sun and shade. They are very low maintenance and easy to grow from Begonia seeds.

Wax Begonias are wonderful bedding plants! The uniformity of their size and shape makes them perfect for mass plantings, and they are also great for containers and hanging baskets. Wax Begonias plants are especially good in shady areas where few other plants will bloom. They are known to be heat and drought tolerant as well. In frost-free climates, these Begonias can overwinter and be reliable perennials if moisture is available and summer suns are not scalding. Begonia flower seed is delicate and the consistency of powder. Start Begonia flower seeds indoors 10 - 12 weeks before last frost. Press Begonia seeds onto the sterile potting mixture, but do not cover the seeds. Water from underneath to avoid fungus, and cover the flower seed tray with plastic wrap. Transplant outdoors in the spring and enjoy the lovely display!
