Begonias are a corm that, when planted, produce thick stems that bare unusually shaped and sometimes patterned leaves. They can be either trailing or upright, both are fantastic in their own right. The real focal point though, is the gorgeous big flowers. The flowers are very deep in colour and are produced in abundance throughout the summer season. Perfect in patio pots and borders. Trailing varieties look spectacular in hanging baskets
