Begonia ‘BIG Rose with Bronze Leaf’ has been granted an Award of Merit by the Council of the Royal Horticultural Society at the Autumn Harvest Show in London, which took place Oct. 5 and 6. The show is open to all, consumers, the trade and a very wide cross section of the garden industry.

The Royal Horticultural Society’s Award of Merit is intended to be of practical value to the home gardener. Begonia ‘BIG Rose with Bronze Leaf’ has met all the criteria for this award: It impressed the Tender Plant Committee with the strong growth, large flowers held well out from the plant, and excellent qualities for pot and garden cultivation. BIG does not require highly specialist growing conditions or care. It is weather resistant, not particularly susceptible to any pest or disease, and it is not subject to an unreasonable degree of reversion in its vegetative or floral characteristics.
