What to know about Begonia Flowers –


  • About begonias:

    begonias are a favorite annual plant with a full set of flowers that grow bigger and in more abundance as the season wears on. Depending on the variety, they can be used in medium shade or full sun. And they don’t require much watering – in other words, they can survive mild dry conditions.

  • The begonia family has more than 1,800 different plant species. They are native to subtropical and tropical climates. Most begonia plants require bright shade; some will tolerate full sun, especially in warmer climates. Begonias require a well drained soil planting that is neither constantly wet nor allowed to dry out completely.
  • REFERENCE: wikipedia
  • Where to grow:

    begonias thrive in both summer cool and hot climates in semi-sunny and for some varieties full sun. They come in all types of flower petal shapes and colors. The begonia leaf can also take on different colorful patterns.

  • Begonias can tolerate cool temperatures but the top of plant will die at the first freeze. However, the tubular structure of the plant buried beneath the ground will lie dormant during the winter and can blossom again in the next season.
