Ambassador is a rich green-leaf begonia series for early production featuring large flowers on compact 8-10 inch/20-25 cm plants. Ambassador offers the perfect balance of earliness in the pack and vigor in the garden. This series is very good for extensive plantings in outdoor beds and includes the best Scarlet on the market. Senator is a bronze leaf series with a beautiful contrast between flower and foliage that is well matched with Ambassador. Both the Ambassador and Senator series are reliable substitutes for shade impatiens if downy mildew is a problem.
