In a pot, they make a perfect upright filler in a combination or they can be the star of the show. In a border, they’d make a striking edging.

Description

Begonia be-GON-yuh  

Begonias have been around for ages, and with good reason: this easy-to-grow annual does well in a variety of conditions and needs little to thrive. Provide it with light shade, rich well-drained soil, ample water and plenty of fertilizer and you’ll be rewarded with stunning flowers and foliage. With so many different shapes, sizes and colors, begonias have no problem taking the spotlight in any garden setting. Begonias perform best in warm environments, so planting after there’s no more chance of frost will allow them to thrive. Be patient after planting. Begonias take a bit of time to get going and you usually won’t see a burst in growth until after the summer heat kicks in.
