Use in containers and landscapes. Great when planted in masses and an excellent plant for combinations as well.Maintenance Notes:
These plants are versatile working in both sun or shade, which makes them a wonderful unifying 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 moisture and regular feeding. They love the heat and do not need to be deadheaded to bloom all summer long. What's not to love!
