Description

With zesty lemon-yellow double blooms and a zingy fresh fragrance, Begonia odorata 'Sunny Dream' is a true delight! Flowering non-stop all summer long, this dreamy begonia is a sight for sore eyes whether it’s sunny or not. If you love soft colour tones, this modern, elegant and sophisticated begonia radiates charm and good taste, bringing in the colour and flower power but without being too busy. Thriving in partial or even full shade, it’ll bring all the floral rewards you need for any dull spot, injecting that much-needed little ray of sunshine.

Large, draping double blooms create that ideal tumbling effect in pots, hanging baskets or window boxes to create an all-round big and feisty display.

Begonias like these are also loved for their bold architectural foliage which adds that extra oomph. Whether you make a big feature of them or combine with other flowers or foliage plants, Begonia odorata 'Sunny Dream' is a real sweetie and we’re sure you’ll be totally besotted. Odoratus (feminine form Odorata) is a Latin adjective meaning fragrant or perfumed!
