Nonstop® JOY – the first semi-trailing Nonstop® begonia
Nonstop® JOY is one of the world famous Nonstop® begonias from Benary. This means that JOY is ideal for premium production, featuring proven Nonstop® quality and excellent seed. Available on the market for 40 years, the Nonstop® brand is popular with customers the world over. And with people of all ages. This is a key benefit to retailers because customers recognise the brand name.
The breeding goal
Benary breeders focused on creating a trailing begonia that is straightforward to grow, high quality and also easy to market. The outcome is Nonstop® JOY and an outstanding success.
Here's what makes Nonstop® JOY so special:
Nonstop® JOY is the first semi-trailing begonia in the Nonstop® family and the first ever from seed. Good branching and a compact habit make it ideal for transport as stems will not break. This is a huge benefit to growers, retailers and consumers alike. Hanging baskets are ideal to show off Nonstop® JOY's beautiful globular habit. Nonstop® JOY also looks stunning in decorative tubs. And anyone planting the new Nonstop® in the open ground can look forward to a gorgeous begonia that combines vigorous growth with large double blooms.
Nonstop® JOY thrives in shade and partial shade. Just as the name says, Nonstop® flowers all summer long until the first frost falls.
Benary started the 2015 season with Nonstop® JOY Yellow. Our breeders already have more colours in the pipeline for the next few years, both with green and bronze leaves. Nonstop® JOY is a whole new series to delight growers, dealers and consumers for years to come.
Tips for growers
We recommend using four plugs each for baskets (approx. 30 cm) and decorative tubs. To make sure they look their best when put out for sale put Nonstop® JOY into 12 to 13 cm pots.
