About Apricot - Begonia Bulbs (Roseform)

Begonia tuberhybridia

Seed Type Tuber
Plant Type Roseform
Also known as Tuberhybrida Begonia

When people think of a Begonia, the image that most people see is the Roseform apricot. It has a striking resemblance to a rose, but the similiarity stops there. The begonia Roseform is not nearly as particular and demanding as a rose. Just plant these bulbs in partial sun or shade and keep the soil most. In no time you will be enjoying lush golden blooms with reddish hues throughout the season.
