Aren’t these Watermelon Jurassic Rex Begonias gorgeous!

Their leaves have stunning colouration on them! They prefer bright, indirect light year-round. They are not aggressive bloomers so they can tolerate less light than other begonias and can even thrive under fluorescent lights.

These plants are a little picky when it comes to watering. They like even watering but hate to be overwatered! Same goes for the humidity, they like it but don’t like to be misted. Misting encourages powdery mildew!

They prefer the temperature to be warm and humid, some begonias even go dormant during the fall. They grow best in light, fast-draining soil and it’s best to use liquid fertilizer weekly at quarter strength and bi-weekly at half strength.

Be sure to check out these unique plants next time you visit!

With the bright red petals it’s no wonder this Geum is called the Blazing Sunset! This flower is not only beautiful but also relatively easy to care for.

Like it’s name, this clump-forming perennial loves the sun so be sure to avoid shady areas when planting. Also avoid areas that are boggy in winter and add some compost to the soil before you plant.

In late winter or early spring remember to remove dead foliage to make way for new growth. Other than pruning this flower is low maintenance and works well to fill areas because of its clump-forming nature.

Stop by and view this gorgeous perennial!

Begonia’s are a great way to brighten shaded areas or garden corners. Not only are the flowers gorgeous, but the leaves are patterned with attractive colours and textures. This type of plant is also relatively easy to care for year-round.

These flowers like to be in partial to deep shade, being exposed to the afternoon sun puts the plant at risk of being scorched.

Begonias prefer to be in ordinary potting soil and watered when the top inch of soil is dry. Avoid misting their leaves, this can cause the leaves to dry out and break.

Adding balanced liquid fertilizer once a month will help increase the growth and lifetime of these flowers. Begonia’s can survive year-round as long as you bring them indoors during the winter months.

Begonia’s are a great way to brighten shaded areas in your yard or garden, stop by and browse our beautiful selection!
