Terra Nova Releases New Begonia Videos

Terra Nova Nurseries has released two brand-new begonia videos as part of its “Terra Nova Varieties View” series. The new videos feature two of the company’s begonia series, including the begonia Silver series and begonia T Rex series. Chuck Pavlich, Terra Nova’s director of new product development, is featured in the videos, sharing his insight about each of the series and their respective varieties.

Terra Nova’s new begonia Silver series is showcased as part of Terra Nova’s new video program because it involves the company’s hardiest begonia breeding to date. Pavlich reveals in the video that it took several generations of breeding to perfect the Silver varieties’ height and shape, while also maintaining their hardiness.

Silver begonias have a large, dense and shrubby habit that works great in gardens, containers or hanging baskets. They are listed as hardy to Zones 8 through 11. However, they also perform well in Zone 7 with mulch. They were bred to be quite cold tolerant and can live outdoors until hard frost before going dormant.

A video of the begonia T Rex series was created to display and discuss Terra Nova’s exceptionally cold-tolerant hybrid begonias. Pavlich explains in the video that the T Rex begonias were bred to combine high-altitude, heat-loving begonias with the most cold-tolerant species.

T Rex has earned high rankings and awards from university and other trial gardens. A recent win included ‘T Rex Ruby Slippers’ receiving high honors at the Colorado State University trial garden in 2019.

The two videos can be viewed on Terra Nova Nurseries’ YouTube channel at

The next installment of the video series will be released in late June.
