A sparkling new cascading begonia is being launched exclusively by mail order and online ornamental plant supplier Woolmans. Bred by Tim Kerley of Kerley & Co, Sweet Pearl Cascade is a sister to the much famed Sweet Coral Cascade which the company introduced in 2016.
Sweet Pearl Cascade is incredibly floriferous producing an abundance of fully double, creamy coloured blooms, a rich rose pink on the petal reverse, with a wonderful rose-like fragrance. Naturally bushy in habit, the flowers are presented on lengthy (40cm/16in) trails and look at their best displayed in hanging baskets, window boxes and patio containers.
Named by the breeder, Sweet Pearl Cascade will provide perfume and colour from June to the first frosts.
“We are thrilled to be offering Sweet Pearl Cascade to our customers” says Tom Stimpson of Woolmans. “The colour is absolutely gorgeous and compliments the peachy pink tones of Sweet Coral Cascade, which we introduced in 2016, to perfection”. The fragrance is something very special too and is really intense – in fact, if you closed your eyes while taking in the wonderful perfume, you could be forgiven for thinking you were standing in a field of roses! We are tremendously proud to be offering this exclusively to UK gardeners in 2018.
“We’ve been working with Tim Kerley for a number of years and are regular visitors to their nursery. It’s always an incredibly worthwhile trip – especially when you are shown something as special as Sweet Pearl Cascade!” We were delighted when Tim offered it to Woolmans as an exclusive introduction because it totally won us over!”
A pack of 5 young plants of Begonia Sweet Pearl Cascade is priced at £14.95 (plus postage and packing) for despatch in late May 2018.
