The Solenia® Apricot Rieger Begonia is easy to maintain and adds stunning color and texture to a space. Vibrant double blooms feature ruffled petals in a lovely shade of apricot with hints of orange and bloom from spring through frost. Also known as Begonia x hiemalis, this plant is a prolific bloomer, and the flowers grow in clusters. The foliage is hard to see when this Begonia is covered in flowers, but the large dark green foliage has serrated edges.

The upright, mounded growth habit with a branched structure gives this Begonia a full form. Use the Solenia® Apricot Rieger Begonia in a mixed bed or border or as a filler in a container. The peachy-orange flowers look lovely in a hanging basket. This annual is mildew resistant, so ensure it receives plenty of sunlight, but there is a reduced risk of powdery mildew and fungal infections.

Solenia® Apricot Rieger Begonia Care

Water Rieger Begonias when the top couple of inches of the soil are dry. This plant prefers damp conditions but doesn’t like soggy soil. For containers, use a rich, moist, well-drained potting mix. Place the plant in part to full sun. Plants in full sun will set more flowers, so make sure this Begonia gets at least 6 hours of sunlight if you want a ton of blooms. Fertilize the plant using a balanced plant food every two weeks during the growing season.

The Solenia® Apricot Rieger Begonia will continue to bloom without deadheading, but removing spent flowers keeps the plant tidy. This Begonia is an annual in most areas but can overwinter indoors. Cut back growth before the first frost in the fall and place the Begonia in a sunny window. The plant may not bloom indoors, but it should survive until spring.

Solenia® Apricot Rieger Begonia Spacing

Mature plants reach 8 to 12 inches tall and wide. The Solenia® Apricot Rieger Begonia has a dense growth habit, and plants should be spaced 8 to 12 inches apart to create a continuous planting.
