Plant details

Begonias are matchless when it comes to sustaining a riot of dazzling colour all summer in light shade. There are trailing varieties are ideal for edging containers of all kinds, and bushy upright kinds for planting in the centre of containers or as bedding in shaded positions. 'Pin-up' is a bushy up-to-date F1 hybrid variety, a Fleuroselect Gold Medal winner, with enormous single blooms up to 13cm (5in) across, intensely white with a deep pink margin to the petals. The plants are bushy and shapely, and can be kept from one season to the next, increasing in size and vigour.
