We are sorry but this Begonias will be unavailable the entire season.

We purchase the licensed starter plants from the breeder, Dummen Orange.  Due to major crop issues at their propagation facility ALL of our orders for this and many other begonias has been cancelled.  Unfortunately  we learned of this problem after the catalog had been already been printed.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.

We will be subbing the Solenia Begonia Velvet Red with Bliss Deep Red.  
 
Pictures of the Begonia Bliss Red are the bottom 2 pictures to the right of the large picture. 
 We have displayed both pictures so you can compare the plants!

 Self-Cleaning (no deadheading necessary)   

   Attracts Butterflies & Hummingbirds


    Heat & Humidity Tolerant    Rabbit & Deer Resistant



Bliss Begonia are a dream in containers or landscapes!  The large 2.5-3.0" papery rose-like blossoms are fully double with lots of ruffling among the petals.  The solid, clear, vibrant colored blooms hold up better and longer than many other varieties while the dark green deeply crinkled foliage adds to the drama and pizzazz.   A low-maintenance plant as Bliss prefers that the soil dry down between waterings and the self-cleaning blossoms will drop when the bloom is spent.  A natural for shade to part sun the 10-12" tall plants fill in window boxes, baskets, planters, borders and beds.  Bliss Begonias attract butterflies and hummingbirds but are deer and rabbit resistant.

 Self-Cleaning (no deadheading necessary)      Attracts Butterflies & Hummingbirds


    Humidity Tolerant    Rabbit & Deer Resistant    Can be grown indoors



Enjoy continuous double blooms with these semi-trailing, low maintenance plants. A cross between a tuberous begonia and a wax begonia, Solenia likes the sun and humidity (but not extreme heat) and is tough enough to plant in containers or landscapes. An excellent branching habit keeps them from getting top heavy and breaking. Allow the soil in these mildew/wind resistant plants to dry a bit between watering.

Bloom Size:  2.5-3.0"

           or in landscape borders and beds, spacing 12-14.
           Can also be grown indoors.
