Uses Notes: 

Try mixing these sun tolerant begonias with other medium vigor plants in hanging baskets, upright containers and in well-drained landscape soil.

Maintenance Notes: 

These begonias prefer moist but not wet, well-draining soil. These are not hardy, but the corms can be dug up, stored for the winter and replanted the next spring. Plants will perform best with limited overhead watering, early enough in the day to dry completely before nightfall. Unnecessarily wet foliage at night can promote disease issues. Otherwise, the plants are largely carefree.  A controlled or slow-release plant food at planting will help them have peak performance.
