Ernst Benary of America
The wait is over! Benary has a new color in their BIG Begonia series—BIG Green Leaf Pink. This new, must-have color has the same huge flowers and amazing branching as the rest of the BIG series. It flowers on top of the foliage, showing more of that amazing color at retail and in the garden. BIG Begonias thrive in full sun to full shade in every area of the country. Benary says BIG Begonias is the easiest plant you’ll ever grow.
