Unique Fragrant Begonia, odorata Angelique
Begonias are amongst the most rewarding plants for pots and containers.They provide a prolonged and colourful display throughout the Summer, right up to the first frost in the Autumn.
Begonia odorata Angelique is an outstanding new introduction and one of the first Begonias to have a wonderful fragrance. Reminiscent in colour to the Tulip Angelique, it produces an abundance of cascading fully double white blooms which are blushed pink. These unique large flowers (up to 15cm across) are an ideal variety to create a glorious display in hanging baskets and containers.
In order to get a head start on the growing season, we recommend starting your tubers off indoors or in a heated greenhouse for about 4 to 6 weeks. Once the danger of frost has passed they can be transferred outside to a shady position.
