Begonia ‘Roseform White’ is an upright, tender perennial adorned with large and magnificent, fully double, crisp white flowers, up to 4-8 in. across (10-20 cm). Blooming from midsummer to frost, the remarkable blossoms resemble roses with their packed rows of smooth petals. A favorite among the shade-loving plants, this elegant tuberous begonia deserves a spot in your beds, borders, window boxes, or containers, where its brilliant blooms will brighten your shaded spaces.

  • Forms a bushy mound up to 14-20 in. tall (35-50 cm) and 10-12 in. across (25-30 cm).
  • Best in fertile, well-drained, neutral to slightly acid soil in light to partial shade. Provide good air circulation and protect your Begonia from strong winds!
  • Ridiculously easy to grow, deer and rabbit resistant, and carefree.
  • Tender perennials, Begonias are not winter-hardy. In cooler areas than zones 9-11, dig up the tubers before the first frost and store them dormant in a cool dry place over winter.
  • Plant your Begonias in spring after the last threat of night frost, approximately 12 in. apart (30 cm) and slightly below the soil line (they rot easily when planted too deep). Many people start up begonias indoors 4 – 6 weeks before planting them outdoors to get a “jump” on the season and produce earlier blooms.
  • Toxic to dogs, toxic to cats, toxic to horses.
