Begonia ‘Cool Breeze Rouge’

*** PLEASE NOTE ***

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

'Cool Breeze Rouge' is a sister to 'Cool Breeze Pewter' and is more of a show-off. They are similar in youth, but 'Rouge' soon goes her own way by taking on a beautiful port wine glaze over her leaves as the heat climbs. The leaves of 'Rouge' are slightly more rounded than those of 'Pewter', but they are an even match in culture and care. Both are easy, will take heat and humidity, but are quite tolerant of cool weather too.

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.
