The Koppe Begonias help you get your daily power back, with their gorgeous shape and a glimpse of love at first sight.

But wait, it's time to talk about why these charmers have become so popular nowadays and why they're gardeners and floral designers' #1 choice when it comes to flowers.
1. Their Beauty Impacts
Although most begonias produce lovely sprays of bloom throughout the year, it’s their foliage that also takes a center stage. Each leaf is a wonder in itself. Shiny and strong green leaves, sometimes dramatically marked with splotches, spots, and circles of bold color against a dark green background.
2. They're Shade Lovers
Most Koppe Begonias are happy in the shade or in a spot with indirect sunlight! This is yet another reason why people in their homes choose begonias. And gardeners and floral designers are opting to have begonias as part of their year-long gardens or for floral creations. The fact they don’t like direct sunlight is definitely a plus and will make Koppe Begonia thrive in spots where other indoor plants might struggle. Of course, they won’t grow in total darkness, but bright, indirect light suits them just fine.
3. Can Grow Indoors or Outdoors
Probably the best benefit that Koppe's range of Begonia offers both gardeners and floral artists is the fact they will get the best of both worlds. Can be grown both as an indoor or outdoor plant, meaning as a gardener, you can decorate the inside of your home with lovely Koppe Begonia varieties, but at the same time transform your outdoor space into a marvelous Begonia garden. Find out how Begonia Belove lets you choose indoor or outdoor in the article: 'Begonia Belove Lets You Choose Indoor or Outdoor'.
4. Easy to Care For Flowers Are the Best
Koppe Begonias are indeed known to be easy-to-care-for plants, which will of course make houseplant and/or gardening life or your future floral creations easier, in case you're a flower designer. Some Koppe tips to keep your Begonias beautiful 24/7:
- Be sure to water them whenever the soil feels dry to the touch.
- Over time, some varieties can grow quite tall or wide, but simply prune off excess growth.
- Last but not least, offer your blooms a little liquid fertilizer every few weeks during the spring and summer.
Koppe Begonia and a Little BTS of The Flower's Growth Process
Although Koppe Begonia varieties are becoming very loved and popular amongst floral designers, gardeners, and growers, it's vital to know about how your flower is actually grown and how it makes its way to the final destination. Whether it be a flower shop, your home, or your own personal garden (or to create floral arrangements), Koppe Begonia has a growing process of its own and you're about to know the behind the scenes of how it's grown and created.
The Starting Point Begins With The Breeder
Did you know that all plants and flowers you see in your garden centers, supermarkets, and flower shops, all have a starting point? They are all being created by a breeder. These flowers are not just magically found, they are created and go through a very meticulous process to get the desired final result that is very premium and high-quality. The point of creation starts with the breeder (in this case Koppe) who cross breeds and selects the best of the best plants so not only consumers/buyers are happy with the final product, but they are also easy to grow for growers. (Meaning a quick production time, with the use of no or very little pesticides, and less heat for sustainability purposes, and to keep the gas bills low, of course.)
If you're currently a floral artist, a houseplant lover, or a gardener, it is recommended to buy from growers that currently have the Koppe varieties, because as mentioned, they make sure the flowers go through a very meticulous and high-quality logistical process to be able to deliver the best begonias in the market.
