  • Hula is a unique spreading type of begonia that is highly branched and covered with flowers.
  • Its trailing habit is perfect for baskets and containers.
  • Provides an instant performance advantage for landscapers, with masses of flowers showing on top.
  • The series is daylength neutral and it is the earliest interspecific begonia to flower, with timing similar to BabyWing®.
  • The high number of flowers provides great colour impact.
  • Hula starts to spread at an early stage and, along with early flowering, it provides growers with a high-quality, attractive, salable plant that is covered with blooms at retail, in both hanging baskets and smaller pot sizes.
