Description

The 'Ruffled Sisters' AmeriHybrid® begonia collection comprises three of the very best hybrid begonias: 'Ruffled Pink', 'Ruffled Coral' and 'Ruffled Rose'. These three ruffled begonia varieties will enhance any garden border or container display – and provide plenty of beautiful cut flowers for the vase, too. They flower from June until the first frosts of autumn!

 ⚠️ Please note:  AmeriHybrid® begonias grow from relatively small tubers, but these special varieties produce some of the most spectacular blooms. Don't be alarmed if the bulbs appear smaller than you expect from us good things come in small packages!


'Ruffled Pink' produces delightful, large double begonia flowers in shades of soft, delicate pink. Some of the blooms have a lighter centre, giving an amazing bi-colour effect. 'Ruffled Coral Salmon' is similarly large and double, with rich salmon-orange blooms. 'Ruffled Rose' gives this collection the finishing touch with its soft pink colour. All three varieties have unusual ruffled petals!

AmeriHybrid® tuberous begonias are the latest and greatest in breeding, the result of more than 80 years of careful selection. These varieties are rarely offered and we are delighted to have secured them for you.
