What are Double Begonias?

Double begonias are a type of begonia plant known for their large, showy double flowers that come in a wide range of colors. They are a popular choice for gardeners who want to add some color and texture to their gardens or containers. Double begonias can be divided into four main types:

Nonstop Begonias

Camellia Begonias

These look like nonstop begonias but have bigger blossoms that look similar to camellias. They bloom from spring to fall and come in red, pink, white, and yellow hues. They can reach 15 inches in both length and height.

Ruffled Begonias

Theyre also known as picotee begonias. They have ruffled the flowers with contrasting hues on the petals. They bloom from summer to fall and come in a wide range of colors such as red, pink, white, yellow, and orange. They can get up to 18 inches tall as well as broad.

Pompon Begonias

Ballerina begonias are another name for them. They have blooms that resemble pompons or petals balls. They bloom from summer to autumn and come in a variety of hues including red, pink, white, yellow, and orange. They may reach a height and width of 12 inches.

How to Plant Double Begonias

Double Begonias

Double begonias thrive in moderate shade and well-draining soil. Make sure the soil is wet and the hole is twice as large as the root ball when planting double begonias bulbs or tubers. Backfill the hole with earth after inserting the plant. Water the plant well and put mulch around the base to help it retain moisture.

How to Care for Double Begonias

To keep your double begonias healthy and blooming, follow these care tips:

  • Water regularly, but do not overwater. Allow the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings.
  • Fertilize every two weeks with a balanced fertilizer.
  • Deadhead spent flowers to encourage more blooms.
  • Pinch back the stems to encourage a bushier plant.
  • Protect the plant from extreme heat and cold.

How to Propagate Double Begonias

Double begonias can be propagated from stem cuttings or by dividing the tubers. To propagate from stem cuttings, take a 3-inch cutting from a healthy plant and place it in moist soil. Keep the soil moist and the cutting in partial shade until it roots. To divide the tubers, dig up the plant and separate the tubers with a clean knife. Replant the tubers in fresh soil.

How to Overwinter Double Begonias

If you live in a cold climate, you may want to overwinter your double begonias indoors. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Cut back the stems to about 6 inches above the soil.
  2. Dig up the tubers carefully and shake off any excess soil.
  3. Store the tubers in a cool, dry place in paper bags or cardboard boxes filled with peat moss or vermiculite.
  4. Check the tubers periodically for signs of rot or mold and discard any damaged ones.
  5. Replant the tubers in spring when the soil is warm and the danger of frost has passed.
