True Breakthrough in Breeding

The Begonia x hybrida Viking® Explorer is a new and unique Viking Explorer which represents a true breeding breakthrough. The first hybrid Begonia of its type with a strong and intrepid trailing habit! 

With Viking blood and an adventurous heart, Viking Explorer holds up well under a wide variety of weather conditions, from cool and wet to the hottest sun, and feels right at home in any garden or landscape in almost every corner of the world!

Ideally suited to hanging baskets or taller containers where it can really show off its all-over flower power and impressive colour!

An Absolute Wow!

Zinnia hybrida is an absolute wow! At retail, the well-formed plants have irresistible flowers with a vibrant red centre surrounded by golden yellow outer petals. In the garden or in the landscape the aging flowers develop into soft, beautiful shades of apricot, salmon, and dusty rose bringing a wealth of colour to the garden, all from one variety!

Throughout the summer, new flowers continue to bloom over old, giving a wealth of gorgeous colour all summer long. A true breeding breakthrough, and a winner of the 2022 Fleuroselect Gold Medal.
