Begonia ‘Cool Breeze Glacier’

*** PLEASE NOTE ***

This plant is no longer for sale from TERRA NOVA® Nurseries. It is strictly on our website for information purposes only.

Another plant in the great COOL BREEZE™ Series, this very vigorous selection shows well; spring, summer outside, and especially in winter indoors. An elegant house plant, it appreciates a cooler home and isn't stunted by coolness, like the older begonias. It grows as a very round mound, perfect for a manicured patio pot, or as a neat garden plant. The leaves are very similar to its siblings, rounded, ruffled and possessing a red back.

Grower Notes

These tolerate cool greenhouse conditions with a low of 40 deg 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.
