In detail

Begonia Tuberosa Pin-Up scored high on all qualifications in the Fleuroselect Trials for Pack and Garden Performance. The earliness and distinctness are the most high regarded features of this new variety. Most surprising are the huge single flowers, notable for their tender white colour, with deep rose edges. They appear very early and last for a long time. Pin-Up is a most suitable name for this Gold Medal Winning Begonia. The other strong features of Pin-Up are of main importance to Professional growers, who can produce flowering bedding plants and also beautiful pot plants. They score high on earliness, uniformity, durability and shelflife. As bedding plants Pin-Up can be planted out in flower beds, tubs and window boxes after the last frosts. Home gardeners cannot raise Begonia tuberosa easily. The satisfaction though, for those that succeed, is most rewarding. The result is an accomplishment by itself from such tiny seeds. But purchased at the garden center Pin-Up will be very satisfactory when its flower power and vigour show off in the garden or the window. Begonia Tuberosa Pin-Up cannot avoid drawing attention. Therefore it should be placed alone or near contrasting colours and plants, such as Lobelia Compliment Scarlet or Alyssum maritimum Snow Crystals.
