Begonia Seeds - Wax White (Begonia Semperflorens ) GREAT container, Garden Bed , Patio Planter and front borders

Wax Begonia (Begonia Semperflorens White) - Uniformity is the trademark of these versatile little annuals grown from Begonia seeds. Wax Begonias have tight mounds of closely packed leaves covered with white blossoms. Fibrous Begonias perform well in rich, well-drained soil, but the soil must be allowed to dry between waterings. Begonia Semperflorens will form tight, compact plants in full sun, with increasingly looser form and fewer flowers as you move them deeper into the shade. Wax-leaved Begonias lend themselves to large, formal plantings because of their uniform size and shapeliness, and they readily establish from Begonia flower seeds making mass plantings affordable. They're also suitable in front of summer annual borders and combine well with other cool-colored flowers in mixed plantings and containers.

Begonia flower seed is delicate and the consistency of powder. Start flower seed 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 Begonia plants into good garden soil that is high in organic matter that will retain moisture keeping the soil cool. Begonia care includes pinching the stems back if they look scraggly to encourage compact growth. Wax Begonias require regular watering to look their best but will survive periods of drought.
