'Santa Cruz Sunset'
This NEW and highly desirable species Begonia is drop-dead gorgeous, non-stop blooming and INCREDIBLY HEAT TOLERANT! Forming trailing mounds of deep green, angel-winged leaves to 2’, it’s perfect for hanging baskets, shady pots... or anywhere in the garden where you want gorgeous foliage densely packed with a mesmerizing, super-sized (to 3”) flame-like vermillion blooms that’ll keep up the show all the way from Spring thru first frost. Hardy to USDA zone 7b, it goes deciduous in Winter and returns from tuberous roots in late Spring – once established, it is drought and heat tolerant – although in VERY hot weather, a bit of shade is preferred. If planted in the ground, make sure it gets good drainage.
