Rieger Begonia Baskets

Begonia Reiger HB 3
Our Rieger Begonias shipping in their 10-inch baskets

Rieger Begonias present us with better color choices, including some flowers that are graduated, in sophisticated blends and bicolors. With so many unusual varieties appearing we decided to expand our Rieger program to encompass more of these fancy Begonias. Some of our new selections for 2018 include:

  • ‘Brigitte Orange’ — large, brilliant orange double flowers
  • ‘Carneval’ — large, double red and yellow bicolor flowers; the contrast of colors is beautiful
  • ‘Nadine Yellow’ — double dark yellow flowers
  • ‘Netja Dark’ — double dark pink flowers
  • ‘Red Baron Red’ — dark red frilly flowers

We like to use Riegers in baskets because they sit up straight as they spread out from their container. With the flowers perched above and away from the dark green foliage the interesting colors and bloom styles are easier to see. All of the above varieties come in the 10-inch hanging basket. They are also available in the 4.5-inch pot.
