The beautiful foliage contrasts spectacularly with the large, stunning flowers. You will fall in love with this begonia. This romantic dark red variety captures the heart at first sight. Its flowers start to bloom in late spring. They are large in size and terry shape. The leaves are dark green with serrated edges and are very delicate. They are sensitive to moisture (brown spots appear) and direct sunlight. Tuberous begonias are compact plants that are generously studded with flowers. In a short space of time, they can decorate your plot, patio, veranda or terrace. Begonias are ideal for pots and baskets and look good outdoors. The outdoor planting density is 9 tubers per square metre.
Like all begonias, this variety does not like the cold. A sudden change in temperature will cause its leaves to fall off. The location for planting should be well sunlit, but direct rays should be avoided. A spot of shade is ideal. Also, tuberous begonias grow well in shady conditions and this makes them an invaluable plant. In summer, in hot weather, they should always be shaded. The soil should be fertile, with a pH of 5.8 to 6.5. After flowering, the above-ground part withers and the plant prepares for a dormant period. The begonia tubers should be planted in fresh soil (after the dormancy period). From spring to autumn, keep the soil moist but not damp. The height of the plant is 30 cm.
