Breeder: Takii, Japan

Begonia semperflorens Fiona F1 Red is a powerful colour blast in gardens or landscapes but also in containers. This semi-double type presents strong, upright blooming flowers in radiant red. Fiona Red is self-cleaning and provides continuous colour throughout the summer until the first frost. The plants are characterised by a high degree of uniformity and early flowering, enabling easy production. The attractive flower shape and vibrant colour encourage impulse purchases. An excellent garden performance, long flowering window and nicely filled, large flowers will make Fiona beloved by everyone."
