The Begonia Illumination Apricot, Begonia x tuberhybrida 'Illumination® Apricot', produces large, cascading salmon/coral/yellow flowers all summer long. The compact habit of this Illumination® Apricot makes for a perfect container plant with a spectacular trailing avalanche of double and semi-double flowers well into autumn. This winning mix is a subtle blend of fiery oranges to perfect yellow and every shade in-between.
Plant alone for best effect in window boxes or hanging baskets. Deadheading is not necessary; heat tolerant and pet friendly.
Bellagio Begonias stand apart as a double-flowering plant that has more vigor, better full sun performance, and greater disease resistance than other double-flowering varieties.
This plant can be a perennial in zones 9-11. In zones 3-8 it is an annual only.
