BIG Flower Power
BIG begonias have the largest blooms on the market and size up early for a full, finished look. BIG Begonias outperform every other premium begonia on the market. They have more flowers on top of the foliage for dramatic color all season long. BIG begonias are better in every respect. Producing myriads, up to 8 cm (3") large, oval-shaped flowers, BIG begonias have excellent germination capacity and provide outstanding outdoor performance.

BIGs flower two weeks earlier than comparable competitive varieties and continue nonstop in abundance from spring to late autumn. BIG Begonias are prolific bloomers and THE attraction in any garden. In no time at all they create marvellous masses of flowers in baskets, containers, and flower beds. BIG is the best outdoor begonia in the industry and creates stunning landscapes.

The BIG Easy

BIG begonias thrive anywhere from full sun to full shade. They can handle the hottest summer days, and stand up to the worst thunderstorms. They also stay upright no matter how much rain old Mother Nature can dish out. BIG begonias don’t need much water, so water them every other day and they will be covered with huge beautiful flowers and clean glossy leaves all summer.

Landscapers know – Go BIG or go Home
We all know that begonias are THE landscape staple… from sun to shade, with irrigation or without, they work, and they work hard.
Most plants need to be planted on 20 cm (8”) or 30 cm (12”) centers. BIG begonias will fill in two weeks faster than any other begonia. And they grow 60 - 80 cm (24” - 32”) tall so they can be spaced every 45 cm (18”) on center. The reduced number of plants, labor, and mainteneance can add up to huge savings! BIG begonias require very little once they are established.
BIG begonias should be every landscape professional’s go-to plants for reliable, flawless results.
