Botanical Name: Begonia boliviensis 'Bonfire'

Height: 18 - 36"

Spread: 24 -36"

Form: Tender perennial

Flower Form: Pendulous blooms up to 2" long

Comments: What makes this plant special is that it is not only beautiful but is maintenance free. As it grows, it forms corms which hold moisture for the plants allowing it to withstand drought conditions and still look great. It is fairly fast growing, reaching 24" in as little as 4 weeks. Enjoy a nice rounded, bushy perennial that also never needs pruning. The spent blooms fall off to make room for new ones. Plants are covered with bright red-orange blooms beginning in late spring and lasting all summer.

Bought a hanging basket of Bonfire last summer. Kept it protected from frost in my greenhouse over winter and set it back outside after it warmed back up and it is growing beautifully!
