Product Details

Product Details

A staff favorite in trials, long-blooming Begonia l'Conia® Lucky Strike produces masses of semidouble, bicolor blossoms in pleasing shades of yellow and apricot. The plant's foliage is the other attraction—serrated leaves in a distinctive olive green that are lightly detailed with red, which complements the warm bloom tones. 'FILUCKSTR' PP 27,485

Begonias are warm-climate plants from a huge genus. Some varieties throw large, lush flowers in vibrant colors, others (such as Rex Begonias) make their statements with beautifully patterned foliage, and the best recent introductions offer compelling fragrance as well. All Begonias want good drainage and moderate temperatures. While these plants have traditionally been treasured for use in shady or low-light situations, many newer cultivars offer the same performance in full sun. Use these remarkably varied and beautiful plants in garden beds and containers.

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. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the 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.

Awesome annual for my area.

I happened upon this awesome begonia at a local (to me) nursery last year. I loved this so much I saved the tag. I was unable to find this treasure this year, and since I was inside cooling off, I decided to do a "google search' for this. The growth rate is phenomenal, and the colors - I don't believe you could possibly find another plant that could match the glorious colors. I have already "put in" my request for next year!

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.
