  • Hula is a unique spreading type of begonia that is highly branched and covered in 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.

Mix of red and white blooms. The white variety has bigger flowers and is whiter than the current blush variety. White is not available separately.
