Project Description

Enduring Onyx Crown Jewel™ Begonia

Begonia rhizomatous hybrid ‘Enduring Onyx’ PPAF

Bred by Dr. Cecil Pounders of Innovative Plants and introduced by J. Berry Genetics. The royal crown jewels symbolize power, strength, authority, and protection for monarchs wearing them. The beginning of a momentous event starts with bringing them out of their vault. In that tradition, J. Berry Genetics is excited to introduce the Crown Jewel™ begonia series: rhizomatous hybrids with rich, lustrous foliage that add a royal touch to every garden. The Enduring Onyx Crown Jewel™ Begonia has gorgeous deep black leaves that create a grounding effect in the garden, anchoring the design and allowing all of the plants to shine. Plant this to feel invincible and ready to conquer anything that comes your way! The Crown Jewel™ begonias provide steadfast season-long color, heat and drought tolerance, easy maintenance and no known inclination for disease or insect issues. Hardy to Zone 7.

Available in 2019 as quarts and liners, and 6-inch and 9-inch and mixed containers from Fessler Nursery (Booth 12045).
