AmeriHybrid® series for bigger pots
AmeriHybrid® Begonia is a vigorous type (height: 35 to 50 cm) that will finish 11 to 15 weeks after transplant as an XL plant with a premium price at retail. There are three AmeriHybrid® series, varying by flower shape:
Large, 10 to 20-cm, bicolour blooms. The Picotee Lace types are an inverted variety of a normal picotee; these blooms have light edges on dark-coloured petals.
10 to 20-cm or larger blooms, for a different, more elegant and refined flower shape. AmeriHybrid Roseform begonias display smooth-petalled, symmetrical blooms.
13 to 23 cm each, AmeriHybrid Ruffled Begonias boast the largest blooms in the world! That’s the result of over 100 years of patient breeding and hybridising. Each flower has a highly consistent double shape.

On Top® for early season
Mounded plants show off many 5 to 13-cm flowers. More compact (height: 25 to 30 cm) than the AmeriHybrid® collection, with an assortment of novelty colours. The On Top series tolerates more heat and sunlight than other begonias, and blooms earlier and flowers longer than other varieties.
Sun Dancer™ for hanging baskets
5 to 13-cm blooms are larger than other varieties. Trailing type with double-flowered plants, Sun Dancer™ produces more blooms than other varieties. Plus, its excellent branching habit fills a hanging basket quickly and cascades up to 40 cm.
