A remarkable new cascading begonia, with a delightful, rose-like scent is being launched exclusively by mail order and online ornamental plant supplier Woolmans. Bred in Cambridgeshire by the long-established and well-respected Kerley & Co, Sweet Coral Cascade produces vigorous, lengthy (40cm/16in) trails of double-flowered, salmon-pink blooms, which have long outer petals and multi-layered inner ones to give a most appealing display in hanging baskets, window boxes and patio pots. It was given its name, which was approved by the breeder, following a competition among staff at Woolmans

"Sweet Coral Cascade is really free-flowering, but for me its extra-special quality is the strong, rich, rose-like fragrance", says Laura Oakes of Woolmans. "It also has lovely, glossy foliage to set off the flowers, which are disease-resistant and tolerant of poor weather, so it is a great all-rounder and blooms from June right through to autumn frosts. We are proud to offer this exclusively to UK gardeners in 2016.

"We were actually given a 'sneak preview' of trailing begonias by Tim Kerley, who works on them, and were immediately impressed by the fragrance, habit and floriferousness of what has become known as Sweet Coral Cascade. Naturally, we were delighted when Kerley & Co offered it to Woolmans as an exclusive introduction because it really bowled us over!"

A pack of five jumbo plugs of Begonia Sweet Coral Cascade is priced at £12.95 (plus postage and packing) for despatch in April 2016. When flowering finishes in autumn, the tubers may be saved and stored dry and frost-free before starting them into growth again the following spring.
