The huge, showy begonia blossoms that can be seen in our Display House during the summer and autumn at Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens vary wildly in color, shape, and size. There are begonias with single and double blossoms, in addition to those that have ruffled petals or rose forms. Tuberous begonias grow from thickened, fleshy portions of underground stem (tubers). Our Begonias Collection ranges in color from solid creamy white flowers to some with pink or red edging (known as picotee types), to yellows, salmon and peachy pinks, and to red varieties. This really is a floral show that begs close examination to take in all the forms on display.
