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.
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.
