Product Description - Begonia Camelia

Begonia Camelia

Begonia Camelia gets its name from the resemblance of its flowers to those of a camellia. It was bred in the Netherlands by Dutch breeders.

Its appearance
The adult plant (shrub) reaches a height of 25-30 cm. The stems of this tuberous plant are fleshy, pubescent, covered with medium-sized green, slightly parted leaves. The flowers are medium-sized, with a maximum flower diameter of 12 cm. The flowers are white with a pink border.

This begonia is known for its ornamental qualities and unpretentiousness. Begonia Camelia blooms continuously from June to October. Begonias prefer to grow in fertile, loosened and moist soil, mainly in full sun (not under direct rays), but tolerate semi-shade as well.

Tuberous begonias do not like cold weather. A sudden change in temperature will cause the leaves to fall off. This begonia variety is grown both in pots (on the terrace, balcony) and in open soils (flowerbeds, alpine gardens). Begonia tubers should be dug out for the winter and stored in a dry place.

Guide and tips for planting begonia bulbs

  • Choose the planting location: Begonias prefer partial shade to full shade and well-drained soil. Avoid planting in areas with standing water or where the soil remains soggy after rainfall.

  • Prepare the soil: Loosen the soil and remove any weeds or debris from the planting area. Amend the soil with compost or organic matter to improve the soil's fertility and drainage.

  • Plant the bulbs: Dig a hole that is about 5-7 cm deep and place the Begonia bulbs with their pointed end facing up. Space the bulbs about 15-20 cm apart.

  • Cover the bulbs: Cover the Begonia bulbs with soil and gently press down to remove air pockets. Make sure the soil level is even with the surrounding soil.

  • Water the bulbs: Give the bulbs a thorough watering after planting to settle the soil around the bulbs. Begonia bulbs prefer consistently moist soil, so water them regularly, but avoid over-watering as this can cause rot.

  • Mulch the area: Add a layer of organic mulch around the bulbs to help retain moisture and suppress weed growth. Keep the mulch a few inches away from the base of the bulbs to prevent rot.

  • Monitor the bulbs: Begonia bulbs typically take about 6-8 weeks to emerge from the soil, so be patient. Once they emerge, water and fertilize regularly to encourage healthy growth. Begonias can bloom in late spring to early summer and may require occasional fertilization throughout the growing season.
