If you’re more of a winter family, there’s cherry cordial hanging around your home from now until the new year.
Whether at home or on store shelves, when you see these cherry cordials, remember that the hottest new begonia for 2023 is the very namesake, Surefire Cherry Cordial.
The name says it all. It has deep chocolate leaves and bright red flowers. With the Surefire Red winning over 26 awards nationwide and the Surefire Rose also packing a big trophy case, Surefire will tell you everything you need to know. Garden Guy and his son James are amazed at how carefree these are in the landscape. Sure begonias are insect and disease unmonitored plants and the most shocking thing to me is that they don’t have to be babysitter for water. I came.

My favorite planting combinations were Heart to Heart, Bottle Rocket, Snowdrift caladium, Diamond Snow euphorbia, Color Guard Yucca, Unplugged So Blue salvia and a partnership of Surefire Red with green foliage. It was like a holy wow feast for the eyes. Heart to Hear Caladium and Surefire Begonia have a magical affinity.
Proven Winners’ online promotional information introduces the new Heart to Heart Scarlet Flame Caladium and Surefire Cherry Cordial in a mixed container debuting in 2023. Son James took the opportunity with Surefire Cherry Cordial his Begonia in a mixed container as a thriller with Super Bells Grape Punch Calibrachoa and Super Tunia Mini Vista White Petunia.
What all plants have in common is that they are all planted in well-drained soil. Some beds contained more organic matter than others, but performance has been consistent with all of them. Drainage was definitely a factor in what we put back in after the winter.
We recommend placing Surefire begonias 12 to 18 inches apart. To reach your true potential, maintain consistent hydration and nutrition throughout the long summer months. Not many plants flower non-stop for more than 200 days. This is a solid reason why you should incorporate them into your landscaping in 2023.
