Some plants make life so easy! The Begonia Belove series is definitely in this category. No worries about where to put them; a patio or garden container is fine, but if you'd rather enjoy them inside, they are happy to be there as well. What's your pleasure?

Begonia Belove

Breeder Koppe Begonia has developed a range of fresh colors that will determine the look of your spring and summer. Four of these colors are grown by top Decorum grower J&P Ten Have. The brothers Jos and Peter ten Have are the owners of this flowering plant nursery with over 75 years of history, located close to the large Naaldwijk auction of Royal FloraHolland. Their begonias are recognized worldwide because both the nursery J&P Ten Have and the Decorum brand make quality and environment top priorities.

Sepals Instead of Petals

All four have the same characteristics; after all, they're of the same origin. Around a small yellow heart grow sepals in various colors, such as cherry, red, pink, and yellow. Yes, begonias have sepals, no petals like other flowers and plants. Sepals are usually the supportive leaves to protect an unopened flower. However, since begonias lack petals when blooming, the sepals seamlessly take over this role and even colorize, which they usually don't.

Indoors & Outdoors

These plants love to be in a light spot indoors or outdoors. Just protect them a little from constant full sunlight, and give them plenty of water. No surprise for an experienced gardener, knowing that the begonia finds its origins in the rainforests of Asia, Africa, and the Americas. They love to be especially in tropical areas where there is lots of light and high humidity.

Tip from grower J&P Ten Have: To give the plant even more ornamental value, it is nice to plant several Belove begonias in a large ornamental pot, by color as a frivolous mix.
