    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.  The love the heat and do not need to be deadheaded to bloom all summer long.  What's not to love!

    Strong performance in the sun or in the shade! Here is a new series of begonias from Proven Winners® with large blooms and a strong upright habit that will work well for containers or in the landscape.

    • Beautiful plant! Just covered in flowers! Have it in a container on the East side front step. It has been a very cool, rainy spring and this plant is thriving! None of my other annuals have taken off like it,
