Description

Begonia 'Wummi Mix' is a new selection, comprising a range of beautiful — and extremely double — flowers in exciting colours: from pastel rose- and salmon-pinks with hints of cream, and pale- and lemon-yellows, to stronger gold and orange shades, deep pinks and white. And many of the blooms have Picotee edges and markings of different colours, as well!

The flowers 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. The plants are compact and upright, and the blooms stand out magnificently against the fleshy, medium-green leaves with serrated edges.

Unlike many bedding begonias, pastel-coloured 'Wummi Mix' is 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. This is a stunning new begonia mix, and once you try these flowers, you are likely to want them year-after-year.
