Begonia 'Non Stop'

Begonia ‘Non Stop’ is just that, a never-ending supply of blossoms that are impossibly elegant. The roselike blooms come in shades of white, yellow, orange, coral, pink and red. Adding to the allure is the inexplicable fact that each flower can be completely different than the one on the next branch. Some can be single-petaled, while others are tightly doubled. Some can be a solid shade, while others have a blush of a different shade. Like most of its 1,300 relatives, ‘Non Stop’ thrives in indirect light but can stand a bit of early morning sunshine. It won’t thrive, or possibly even survive, in full sun.
