BIG Begonia – Star of the Show
Since BIG was introduced the series has captured more and more of the global market, from China and Russia to Europe and the USA. Its multi-purpose use and easy maintenance make it popular.
BIG begonias make a stately presentation in park settings, large landscape and container plantings.
