Begonia Charm Pink, live starter plant
The Begonia Charm Pink is a gorgeous flowering plant with large, bright pink petals and dark green foliage. Its beautiful blooms are sure to make any garden or outdoor area stand out. The Begonia Charm Pink is suitable for a range of climates, surviving in both full sun and partial shade.
Begonias are tender perennials, grown for their colorful flowers and foliage. Most begonias can be grown outdoors in pots, in the ground, or in hanging baskets in filtered light and moist, but well drained soil. Where not hardy, grow as annuals or indoors as houseplants. Most begonias can be propagated from leaf, stem or rhizome cuttings in addition to being sown from seed. ‘Charm’ is erect with succulent stems. The many single flowers are everblooming and pale pink in color. The foliage is very attractive and variegated.
This plant enjoys filtered light but can take some sun in winter. Soil should ideally be moist. Begonias grow very well in peat-based compost also. Likes humidity. Does not like cold weather. Pinching tips and pruning outer stems in the growing season gives a bushier plant.
