Like a burst of color in a summer sunset, these tropical-looking blooms will make you want to stop and stare. Especially in the place gardeners love begonias best—the hanging basket— these large, cascading blooms are a stunning treat. They really pop over the deep green foliage. It's not necessary to deadhead these either because they're self-cleaning, so that makes maintenance all the easier. Illumination® Golden Picotee puts on an impressive performance through summer, even in the heavy heat, and will continue to bloom all the way into early fall. We generally treat this one as an annual, the perfect highlight to an annual container garden. Begonia x tuberhybrida pendula 'Golden Picotee' Illumination®
