Comments

Tied for Best Begonia in 2012 Ohio State University trials. More cold tolerant than most.

Grower Notes

These tolerate cool greenhouse conditions with a low of 40° F. Sanitation of media and growing conditions is critical. Greenhouse production recommended for best environmental controls. Avoid use of overhead irrigation. Do not crowd plants as this can lead to more disease problems and stretched plants. Do not plant too deep.
