Benary's Begonia 'BIG Rose with Bronze Leaf' was recently granted an Award of Merit by the Council of the Royal Horticultural Society at the Autumn Harvest Show in London. The show took place Oct. 5-6 and is open to both industry professionals and consumers.
The Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Merit is intended to be of practical value to the home gardener.
According to Benary, 'BIG' does not require highly specialist growing conditions or care. It is weather resistant, not particularly susceptible to any pest or disease and is not subject to an unreasonable degree of reversion in its vegetative or floral characteristics.
