    Maintenance Notes: 

    These plants are versatile working in both sun or shade, which makes them a wonderful unifiying plant to use in both sun and shade beds.  Unlike older begonias, these are quite vigorous.  They can tolerate some drought conditions, but will look their best with more consistent moisure and regular feeding.  They love the heat and are self cleaning so the plants look very clean. They do not need to be deadheaded to bloom all summer long.  What's not to love!

    • I bought both white and pink and I love them. They form a very neat globe shape and are covered with flowers. This summer started out hot and dry, lately it has been hot, humid and rainy. These plants look great all the time, no matter what mother nature throws at them. I will definitely buy them again.
