Begonia Viking™ XL 'Red on Chocolate' certainly stands out from the crowd, so it’s little wonder that it scooped the AAS Flower award 2019! With large, dark bronze leaves and scarlet red flowers, it makes an eye-catching choice for beds and containers. The foliage retains its alluring colour in sun or shade, and won’t fade over the course of the summer. With a compact, mound-forming habit, it remains neat and bushy all summer, making a fabulous, long lasting patio plant. Not only will these stunning begonias flower for up to six months, they’ll also grow to up to 80cm (32in) tall – making them an eye-catching patio plant all summer long. Height and spread: 35cm (14").

Pot up Begonia plug plants into 9cm pots and grow them on in bright, frost-free conditions, away from direct sun. They can be transplanted into their final containers once they have increased in size. When all risk of frost has passed, acclimatise begonia plants to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days, before planting them in their final positions in containers, beds and borders. Choose a sunny or semi shaded position that is protected from strong winds.
Feed and water Begonia plants frequently throughout the growing season taking care not to over-water, as this will cause new flower buds to drop. Deadhead faded begonia flowers regularly to extend the flowering period and encourage more blooms to be produced.
