The Double Delight® Appleblossom Begonia or Begonia tuberhybrida is genuinely a delightful plant. Double blooms are white with soft pink accents. The delicate flowers look like they’re made from tissue paper. Enjoy the lovely blooms from spring through fall. Lobed, dark green foliage with serrated edges completes the look, giving the plant a full, textured appearance.
The charming good looks of the delicate flowers of Double Delight® Appleblossom Begonia are enhanced by their sweet fragrance. Feature this mounded and well-branched begonia in a hanging basket on a covered porch or outdoor entertaining area to enjoy the citrusy-scented flowers as the stems cascade from the container. The Double Delight® Appleblossom Begonia is shade tolerant but can also handle full sun. This beauty dazzles underneath a tree or shrub, in a border or mixed bed.
Double Delight® Appleblossom Begonia Care
The Double Delight® Appleblossom Begonia can live in part sun to full sun, allowing for flexible placement options. Morning sun and afternoon shade are preferred in warm climates. Keep the soil consistently damp but never soggy. Container-grown plants will need water as often as daily. Apply a slow-release fertilizer in the spring to support the plant throughout the growing season.
Deadheading isn’t necessary, but removing spent flowers keeps the plant tidy. Cut back growth in the fall and transplant the begonia into a container to overwinter indoors. Plants grown indoors may not bloom, but they can go back outside after there is no longer a chance of frost.
Double Delight® Appleblossom Begonia Spacing
The Double Delight® Appleblossom Begonia stands 8 to 14 inches tall and spreads 12 to 24 inches wide. Space plants in a bed or border 12 to 16 inches apart. The reaching stems will fill the empty spots with dense foliage and flowers.
