Product Details

A dynamite plant both in color and habit, Begonia boliviensis Bonfire® is an easy-care, long-blooming patio or indoor plant. Its slender, fluted flowers hang from a compact bush and contrast with the medium green, serrated foliage. Its reddish orange blossoms make a striking combination with deep burgundies or true purples. And best of all, this Begonia can handle the humidity and heat of the summer garden. Does not like wet feet. PP 15,108

HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

WHEN WE SHIP

We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Unless you specify otherwise, fertilizers, tools, and other non-plant items are shipped with your plants or bulbs. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.

OUR GUARANTEE

We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

Constant Bright Bloomer

Carolynn from Glenmont NY

First year I found this as a plant in bloom in a local nursery and loved it. Then I found the bulbs on White Flower Farm website for the 2017 season and it did not disappoint. Blooms from July right through until we had a hard frost in Mid-November. Still had some buds that were getting ready to bloom - it just kept on giving color. I planted 3 bulbs in a 12 inch wide container on top of a 15 inch stand of my patio. The branches just flowed over the pot and the tips almost touched the ground with blooms all over it. Just beautiful!

Cascading Beauty (slow to start)

Carolina King from Chapel Hill, NC

I combined this with heavy bloomers like Superbells and geraniums in a 3-tiered planter. Top was all yellow, middle all orange, bottom all red. Show stopper!

Not like any Begonia you've seen

A Gonia without the bee from Chicago, Il.

All Begonias seem pretty adaptable, but the Bonfire is the most unusual Begonia I think I have ever seen. It has a trailing habit that probably suit it more for a raised pot or hanging basket. The unusual flowers are vivid and colorful. They almost have the look of a Pepper Plant. You will absolutely be amazed and get questions and compliments.

A lot of bang for your buck

phyjan from boise ID

Filled a spot under a pergola with some sun and some shade for the entire summer with a fiery orange spot of color. Will order these again for next summer color. Plants arrived healthy and ready to go!

Latin Name Pronunciation: beg-own'ee-uh     

Fibrous Begonias are a diverse group known for their colorful flowers, compact shape, and rounded green, bronze, or variegated leaves. Native to tropical and subtropical regions, they are grown as annuals in cooler areas where they are not hardy. A widely popular bedding and container plant, fibrous Begonias provide a continuous display of color throughout the growing season. With no deadheading of spent blooms required, these Begonias are low maintenance plants making them carefree and well adapted to a variety of garden settings.

Light/Watering: Fibrous Begonias flower well in partial shade to full sun. Bronze-leaved varieties are more suited to full sun. Water moderately once or twice a week during the warmer season.

Fertilizer/Soil and pH: Plant in well-drained soil high in organic matter. Use an all-purpose fertilizer for annuals monthly during the warmer season.

Pests/Diseases: Fibrous Begonias can occasionally be troubled by slugs. Use slug bait, dishes of beer, and diatomaceous earth to discourage them.

Companions: An exceptional container plant, fibrous Begonias pair well with colorful foliage plants such as Caladium, Coleus, and Ipomoea. Or combine in mass plantings with Impatiens and Fuchsia in the garden.

End-of-Season Care: Can be brought indoors in winter in cold climates, and kept in a sunny window.
