|Begonias are tender perennials, grown for their colorful flowers and foliage. Most begonias can be grown outdoors in pots, in the ground, or in hanging baskets in filtered light and moist, but well drained soil. Where not hardy, grow as annuals or indoors as houseplants. Most begonias can be propagated from leaf, stem or rhizome cuttings in addition to being sown from seed.
'Altrincham Pink' is a bushy begonia that has many pink double flowers that bloom best in winter. The leaves are asymetrical and green to brown in color. Low, bushy growth habit; many basal shoots. This plant enjoys filtered light but needs direct sun in winter for best blooming. Soil should ideally be moist. Likes humidity. Does not like cold weather. Needs good light in winter. Pinching tips and pruning outer stems in the growing season gives a bushier plant, good for hanging baskets. Remove dead foliage to prevent disease.
