Semperflorens cultorum begonias are often known to gardeners as wax begonias or bedding begonias. The name means ‘always flowering’ and indeed these will flower throughout the year, given the right location.
Leaves can be quite colourful in greens, bronzes and variegation of green/yellow. Flowers range from dark red, through pinks to white. New varieties often feature a double flower to add to their attraction.
