Description

Flamenco is a robust grower, and we find that it can grow to 18″ tall.  Thick stems, like all our begonias.  Works best in large containers because of it’s size.  Beautiful 3″ – 4″ speckled white, pink and red blooms.  Jumbo 2″ tuber.


Growers Notes:

  • Begonias are planted in spring and can be dug up and overwintered in the fall
  • Prefers containers and hanging baskets in shady areas
  • Plant in potting soil with high peat moss and perlite content
  • Plant shallow, just 1″ below the soil.  Plant crater side up, round root size down
  • Plant in an area that receives mostly shade, or morning sun/afternoon shade
  • Water – Let the soil dry between waterings.  Deep soak every 2-3 days
  • Fertilize every 2 weeks with a 15-30-15 ratio fertilizer
