'Sunny Side Up' is the name of a very special series of Begonia’s. The breeding department of Koppe has worked for years to develop a Begonia that could
improve the image of this plant. The Sunny White is the first result of these efforts. The Sunny White is sold this year and is the first color in a new
collection. In 2013 an Orange and Pink version will be sold. They do also have a bright yellow heart and the beautiful big flowers.
Inspiration for the name of the Sunny Side Up came from... an egg. Sunny Side Up is the American name for a fried egg with the yolk remaining runny.
The white flowers and the yellow heart just look like it.
Besides that the Sunny Side Up with the bright, fresh color and cheerful yellow heart takes the sun into your house. The extra large flowers with a diameter
from 80-90 mm will let your interior shine like never before! This cheerful flowering plant will load your house with joy and color. Chique, Colorful and Trendy!
This ray of sunshine in your home is the perfect gift for you to yourself as well as to the people around you!

Fresh and cheerful plant that will appeal to a broad audience
Nice contrast between the white flower and the yellow heart

This is not an 'old fashioned' plant
This is really new with these beautiful large flowers
Nostalgic, retro and very modern
Name chosen well: 'What you see is what you get'
TV gardener Rob Verlinden says that with such nice varieties, the Begonia will come back. This plant is also well suited for a younger audience.
Myrna Goossens said that she knows the Begonia especially for sitting in het grandmothers windows and is therefore not a fan of the normal Begonia,
but she definitely would want to buy this one because it looks so bright and beautiful and does not really look like a normal Begonia.
