Description

Enhance your garden with the enchanting beauty of the Begonia 'Wummi Apfelblüte'. A standout variety within the begonia family, this elegant plant captivates with its abundant and delicate apple blossom-like white to soft-pink flowers. The plants are compact and upright, and the blooms stand out magnificently against the fleshy, medium-green leaves with serrated edges. The flowers of Begonia 'Wummi Apfelblüte' are large, up to 15cm across, and long-lasting: they will give your patio containers or flowerbeds fabulous colour from mid-summer, continuing until the first frosts of autumn.

Unlike many bedding begonias, 'Wummi' begonias like Begonia × tuberhybrida 'Wummi Apfelblüte' are tolerant of a wide range of light requirements, from full sun to full shade and everything in between. Remember, however, that the more shade you give them, you should expect fewer but larger, flowers and slightly suppressed growth. Begonia 'Wummi Apfelblüte' is a stunning new begonia, and once you try these flowers, you are likely to want them year-after-year.

Named after the German word for apple blossom, 'Wummi Apfelblüte' shines with a gentle palette reminiscent of a serene orchard in springtime.
