Red Begonia Container Kit

This container kit is an easy to use bundle of plants that all grow well together in the shade – perfect for a 16″ pot; complete with soil! The red begonias contrast well with the variegated White and Green Fountain Grass. One of our most popular vines, the lime potato vine adds contrast along with the trailing purple fan flower and the airy white blossoms of the White Glitz Euphorbia. Plant the grass in the back of the pot, arrange the 2 begonias in front of the grass and pop the 2 vines on the outside of the begonias, and place the Euphorbia in the middle. See our video called ‘How to Plant a Container’ for a step by step walk through planting this very similar recipe.
