Tophat™ Begonia

Begonia x hybrida (interspecific hybrid) Tophat™ Series

The earliest, biggest blooms of its type, with the best coverage! Puts on a show in large patio containers, hanging baskets or landscape borders, thriving in sun and shade. The lovely blooms sit atop dense, lush, green foliage, unlike any other variety. Grows as a perennial in mild winter regions; treat as an annual elsewhere.
There are very few rules in gardening, but perhaps the most important one is to work within your zone. Choosing plants that grow and thrive in your particular climate is the very first step toward having a beautiful garden . Learn More
