Mike Gooder of Plantpeddler has entered Begonia Halo from Koppe for a Medal of Excellence award.

Begonia ‘Halo’ (Koppe)
Color: Dark Red

Uses: Year-round indoor potted flowering, outdoors in all applications including: Mono-culture and mixed pots and baskets, landscape applications. All container sizes.

Plant Habit: Upright mounding

Type: Annual

New for 2024, ‘Halo’ is a breakthrough in red Hiemalis (Rieger) Begonias. Bred by the legendary begonia breeder Koppe, Halo is an upgrade to all current varieties. Of the key attributes, early flowering is the most important. Two weeks less crop time than existing red varieties, allows for uniform flowering with other popular varieties in this class. The dark green foliage contrasts beautifully with dark red cup-shaped flowers, which have a high petal count, creating very full rose-like blooms. Versatile, medium-high vigor, free branching with no pinch, creating beautiful, full, round plants.

If so inclined, please take a moment to vote for Halo using the link below.  Annuals voting is only open until June 7th.
