  • Width 8-14 Inches

  • Easy to care for super bloomer!

It’s new, easy to care for, and a super bloomer. Double Up Pink Begonia (Begonia semperflorens) is a new release from Proven Winners that packs a pink punch of flowers above dark leaves. Use this pretty annual to add color to garden beds or containers in part sun or shade. You’ll enjoy its lush pink blooms continuously from spring planting through summer and up to the first frost, without having to prune or deadhead the plants.

Double Up Pink Begonia can handle sun or shade and heat. The plant needs average water, but little attention to keep blooming. With its contrasting pink blooms on bronze-like foliage, you can plant a row of the upright, slightly rounded begonias as a border or as an edge in a garden bed, especially one that gets sun on some parts and shade on the others. The plant can grow to 18 inches high. Use it in containers as a colorful filler.

Double Up Pink Begonia Care

This easy-care annual is known as a wax begonia that loves hot summer days and can withstand occasional drought. Still, average watering is best, especially for these begonias in pots. And that’s all gardeners need to do; the blooms take care of themselves from planting time until frost. There is no need to prune or remove spent flowers; Double Up Pink Begonia does the work for you.

Although this begonia likes heat and can handle some sun, it is best if not left in full afternoon sun in warm growing zones. Otherwise, place the plant in any garden bed that gets morning and mid-day sun or some combination of sun and shade. To ensure they continue to burst forth with double blooms, feed the plants regularly with a balanced fertilizer. They should thrive until cool fall temperatures set in.

Double Up Pink Begonia Spacing

Space Double Up Pink Begonias about 8 to 14 inches apart, depending on the effect you desire. This gives them plenty of room to grow, but not to overlap. In containers, plant the begonias around the edges to fill in bright pink color around taller plants.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
