The Begonia varieties in the Nightlife Range developed by leading German plant breeder Benary have won countless prestigious awards and are considered the gold-standard for wax-leafed bedding Begonia varieties. Begonia Nightlife Range is a premium hybrid variety of wax begonia (Begonia semperflorens-Hybrids) grown for its classically beautiful flowers in enduring bursts of bright red, pink and white, set against the glossy deep bronze leaves.
Begonia Nightlife Range is a compact dwarf variety which means that it will grow to about 23cm to the top of the flowers (but will not grow much larger like many of the traditional species varieties commonly grown in cottage gardens), making it an ideal choice for use as a border. Begonia Nightlife Range is a premium heavy flowering variety of begonia tolerant of infrequent watering and is most commonly grown in garden beds as a bedding plant or in pots. Whilst Begonia Nightlife Range can be grown as a semi-hardy perennial, it is considered an annual in regions subject to frost.
Seeds of the Begonia Nightlife Range are supplied in the form of commercial-grade pelletised seeds for ease of handing and ensure improved germination results. Like most pelletised seeds, seeds of the Begonia Nightlife Range are best started-off in small (~30mm) coir Jiffy pellets, ideally inside a suitable Plant Propagation Kit.
