All About Begonias

Begonias are a colorful plant to add to your garden. They can handle the high temperatures as well. Another added bonus.

 Planted in your garden these plants are perennials. They will return each year to add color to your day! Many will keep them in planters and hang from their deck. I do this as well. Either way begonias are  good plant for your garden. 

  • Wax begonias have succulent stems; shiny, rounded, green or reddish-brown leaves and grow in a mounded habit. They bloom with 1-1/2-inch single or double flowers in shades of red, pink, or white.
  • Tuberous begonias come in two forms, either upright or trailing, and have green or burgundy leaves. Their single, double or ruffled flowers bloom in shades of pink, yellow, orange, red, or white.
  • Angel wing begonias have attractive year-round foliage with speckles or streaks on dark green leaves. The underside of the leaves is usually deep red.
