Self Sown Begonias

These are pictures of the flower that has opened on the self sown begonias from last years hanging basket. They don't look like begonias to me but then the originals could have been hybrids. Then again perhaps they are something else! But what? In themselves they are quite insignificant but if the whole pot blooms at once they will make quite a showing. They are more like snapdragon blossoms!

  1. Hi Valeri. I'm pretty certain those are mimulus plants. They love damp peaty soil and are very good in hanging baskets. Looking at the size and colour of the flowers I think this is probably self-sown from a hybrid - they tend to have larger flowers and are more showy. Do you remember whether you had any mimulus in with the begonias?
