Simply the best—improved in every way

It's a whole new day for begonia. Part angel wing, part fibrous begonia, the new BIG™ series is simply unique—it's the quickest-blooming, largest, most vigorous begonia the world has ever seen. And this splendid color (a fire-engine bright crimson-red) combines wonderfully with the large, elegant bronze foliage. If it's time to update the begonia basket, let BIG™ lead the way.

These color-drenched oval 2½-inch flowers appear in great clusters, while the bronze foliage is glossy and oversized, with nicely pointed tips. BIG™ Rose reaches about 20 inches high and blooms all summer in sun or shade. What a change from fussy older varieties.

Perfect for mass landscaping, bedding, edging, or containers, the BIG™ begonias germinate very easily and are self-cleaning throughout their long, lovely summer season. Released exactly 100 years after the first-ever begonia hybrid, BIG™ is a giant leap forward. Take a look at the other splendid BIG™ varieties: unusual Rose with Bronze Leaf and ultra-bright Red with Green Leaf. Space plants 12 to 15 inches apart apart for dense coverage.

This seed comes as a "pellet". "Pelleted" seeds are small seeds that have been clay-coated to make them larger and more uniform in size and shape, making them easier to handle when planting.
