How can you get a rose to bloom in the shade? Typically you cannot because they are sun loving perennials. But how about if you plant Nonstop Mocca Scarlet Tuberous Begonias in that same shady spot? Voila! You have a fully double true red flower that has a bonus of looking like a fully double rose with a dark green/purple deeply veined leaf. Beautiful and gives you options for that full to part shade location.

Tuberous begonias are native to Bolivia, NW Argentina and Peru, Zones 10 through 11b, where they grow as a perennial in low light conditions. They tolerate early morning sun but the heat of the afternoon will kill them. Great news for shade trees and woodland edge gardeners. It is not attractive to deer so double bonus there. In Zones 3-9 they are treated as an annual, planted after the danger of the last frost has passed.

Nonstop® Mocca Scarlet Begonia Care

Care for tuberous begonias begins with selecting the proper location for them. Early morning sun leading to deep afternoon shade,and well draining soil that is kept moderately and evenly moist will be what it needs to remain healthy and give you long lasting color and vigor. Regular feedings with a water soluble fertilizer, and not allowing them to dry out too often will help keep this annual healthy. Soil pH should be slightly acidic to neutral at 6.0 to 6.5.

Deadheading will prompt the plant to rebloom and is a good habit to get into with a tissue-like double bloom. Keeping the soil clean of debris will go a long way to preventing soil borne diseases. Dead or yellowing leaves should be removed immediately as well to keep from attracting insect pests. No pruning beyond the good housekeeping is needed to keep this plant beautiful.

Nonstop® Mocca Scarlet Begonia Spacing

Spacing is crucial with begonias. Growing to 12 inches tall and 14 inches wide, plant with a spacing of 12 to 14 inches between plants to increase air circulation for the prevention of powdery mildew, a disease that can frequently plague tuberous begonias. Avoid crowding your containers or landscapes, and try to locate the plants in an area where the air is not stagnant. Proper placement and care of this beautiful annual will reward you with summer long color.

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.
