Begonias for baskets

작년

Begonias are a very diverse group of plants, available with a multitude of leaf shapes and colours. They all share the same type of flowers, which have cololurful "sepals" ( not petals ). Some Begonias are suited for outdoors in a moist, shaded spot, while others are better suited for indoors. Bedding Begonias, used for massed flowers displays outdoors, can tolerate some sun. Being native to sub-tropical and tropical regions, they are at their best during the warmer months in places like Sydney, where we have a temperate climate. The leaves and stems can be quite brittle and break easily, so choose a sheltered spot to plant them.

The Begonias pictured are in large hanging baskets hanging either side of utility poles in the City of Sydney , in Martin Place, where they add colour to the bustling business district. The bright red colour of the Begonias contrasts nicely with the dark leaves of the Philodendrons which are on the lower half of the baskets.new7 226.jpgnew7 065.jpg

Annual begonia plants have many uses in the summer garden and beyond. Annual begonia care is relatively simple when one properly learns how to grow begonias. Watering is important in the care of begonias, as is the right location.

Known as wax begonias or bedding begonias, annual begonia plants (Begonia semperflorens) grow quickly and easily fill in spaces in the garden that will benefit from attractive foliage and frilly flowers. They can be a focal point when planted in mass and are excellent specimens for container combinations. Annual begonia plants are also deer resistant, so keep them in mind for trouble spots in the landscape.

Plant wax begonias in a full sun to shaded location. Full sun locations during hot summer days may stress annual begonia plants, making them susceptible to disease. Therefore, in areas where summers are exceptionally hot, plant wax begonias where they will get afternoon shade.

Begonias

Begonias are a commonly used bedding plant that can provide striking color in the landscape throughout the year. The begonia family contains more than 1,300 species and hybrids, many of which are commonly grown as potted foliage plants.

Begonias that do best in the landscape generally fall into three groups: wax begonias, cane or angel-wing begonias, and rhizomatous begonias. Other types like tuberous, Rex, and Rieger begonias prefer cool temperatures and do not usually make reliable landscape plants in Florida, but you can always try them as houseplants.

Wax Begonias
In the landscape, wax begonias (Begonia semperflorens) are most popular, with flowers that keep their rich color, even during the summer. While considered annuals, they can often survive in the landscape for several years. There are numerous single- and double-flowered varieties in shades of red, pink, and white, with either bronze or green foliage. Popular and reliable, wax begonia thrive in sun or shade and perform well in landscape beds or containers. They are tender to the cold, so should be planted in the spring, after the danger of frost has passed.

Cane Begonias
Cane begonias have stiff, upright stems that give them their common name, and produce clusters of dangling flowers in shades of red, orange, pink, or white year-round. Leaves are spotted, banded, or splotched with color, and wing shaped, giving them the once-common name angel wing begonias.

Landscape favorites include ‘Torch’ (red flowers) and ‘Alba’ (ever-blooming white). ‘Sophie Cecile’ is a reluctant bloomer, but its robust, five-foot foliage makes it a landscape standout. For South Florida gardeners these plants provide year-round interest; however, in North Florida they usually die to the ground during the winter.

Fav, comment Award !! Well done on you nice Pics and information.

Begonia is a genus in family Begoniaceae among the flowering plants. The only other member of the family Begoniaceae is Hillebrandia, a genus with a single species in the Hawaiian Islands. Begonia with 1400 species is one of the ten largest angiosperm genera.

Facts About Begonias

The first begonia was introduced into England in 1777.
Begonia's are a very diverse group of plants, many of them are grown primarily for foliage, others for the showy bloom.
Very many species have been introduced, and there are numberless hybrids and variations.
The genus Symbegonia is now included in Begonia.
The begonia's fruit is a dry, winged capsule that splits lengthwise to release the seeds.
The Tuberous begonia is also very popular around the world as a bedding plant and also as a greenhouse plant.
Begonias are propagated from seed or cuttings. Begonias Seeds are very fine, dust-like, and take two to three weeks to germinate.

‘Mistral Red’

Many begonias thrive in the garden and on patios, while others make excellent house plants.

In frost-free zones, perennial begonias can go on and on for years and the annuals often act like perennials in (warm) temperate climates, although they’ll die back in cold gardens.

I would like to see pictures of your autumn :)

wow these are even more wonderful to spot so beautiful it looks thanks for sharing

Begonias are very beautiful flowering plants @ctrl-alt-nwo and good for potting and hanging to show its majesty for people to enjoy.

Love these flowers! But they are quite expensive here and difficult to maintain in good condition! Easier to have orchids instead of hanging basket!

Yeah, maybe they will get powdery mildew there in Thailand.

Gorgeous flowers. They remind me of the hot coals of heat that remain after the fire.

Begonias are some of the easiest plants to grow in containers. This group of warm-loving plants was originally found in the forest understory in tropical and subtropical areas.

Foliage begonias, like rex begonias, are grown for their fancy leaves that have many beautiful colors highlighted by unusual markings and swirls in the foliage. They make a sensational statement when grown on a partially sunlit windowsill.

Flowering begonias, like Begonia boliviensis hybrids, are usually grown as annuals in the summer garden. Many new varieties are non-stop bloomers and some perform well in full sun or partial shade.

https://www.logees.com/begonias.html

Beautiful plant @ctrl-alt-nwo! The type genus for the family Begoniaceae, this genus contains around 900 species of perennials, shrubs, and climbers that are found throughout the tropics and subtropics, with the greatest diversity found in the Americas. Although a few species tolerate light frosts, most are tender and will only survive mild winters, so outside of tropical climates, begonias are best grown as indoor container plants. This is a large genus, and countless hybrids have been introduced, which largely fall into 8 distinct groups: Cane-like, Rex-cultorum, Rhizomatous, Semperflorens, Shrublike, Thick-stemmed, Trailing or Scandent, and Tuberous.

Begonias may be fibrous- or rhizome-rooted or tuberous. They are clump-forming plants with olive green to bright green foliage that may vary in colour, texture, and shape but is often beautifully marked, lobed, or covered in fine hairs. The foliage emerges from the rootstock or is held on cane-like stems. A distinctive feature of begonias is the separate male and female flowers there is usually a single female flower surrounded by 2 or more male flowers, occurring in shades of white, yellow, orange, red, and pink.

Most begonias are tender and will only survive mild winters. In cool climates, some are grown as summer annuals, others as house plants, and the tuberous species are lifted and stored over winter. They grow well in a bright but not sunny position with cool, moist, humus-rich soil. They need to be watered and fed well. Begonias are susceptible to fungal diseases so they need to have good air flow around them. Propagate by division, cuttings, or from the dust-like seeds.

Amazing plant my friend and these begonias (Begonia coccinea) can grow to 2m with straight stems and showy clusters of pendulous waxy flowers from mid-summer to late-autumn. Called ‘Angel Wing’ because of the shape of the heart-shaped, often speckled foliage, they make fine garden plants in sheltered, frost-free gardens. Their form and foliage makes them perfect plants for mixing into borders or using in pots in courtyards and balconies. Allow morning sun, take care not to over-water and prune mature plants hard in late-winter to encourage new growth from the base. Make new plants from stem cuttings.

Tuberous begonias
These are grown for their huge colourful blooms and are best in a cool shade house, with part or filtered shade, and good ventilation to discourage powdery mildew. There are erect varieties suited to pots, and cascading varieties suited to hanging baskets. As the flowering season approaches water them with Phostrogen, but don’t over-water as tubers grow better if kept slightly dry and are susceptible to rotting if kept too wet.

Elatior begonias
Charming begonias for indoors, these are grown for their clusters of pretty pastel flowers. They are happy to grow for a season or two near a bright windowsill or kitchen table. Avoid wet or waterlogged soil. Flowers come in pretty soft shades of peach, lemon, white, pink and apricot. Feed with liquid feed and a sprinkle of controlled release. They are not long-lived but we think they’re better than a bunch of flowers! You’ll find them in the indoor plant section at your local nursery.

Bedding or Wax begonias
This small-growing ‘bright as a button’, old-fashioned wax begonia (Begonia semperflorens) is making a little comeback as a hardy bedding plant for borders and pots. It never stops flowering and lasts one season. It comes in red, white and pink flowers with green or purple leaves. B. semperflorens is great for pots. Watch for powdery mildew fungus on the leaves, treat with a fungicide. To get an extra year out of the plants, try cutting it back over winter, top with straw, keep it dry and it should grow back in spring.

Hanging begonias
‘Bonfire’ (Begonia boliviensis) has exotic flame orange-red flowers with interesting serrated green leaves with a red margin and compact habit. It happily grows to 45cm and will flower continuously through to late autumn. It is very robust and will thrive in hot dry weather in a window box, hanging basket, or in the garden as a border. Feed with liquid feed. Plants die back over winter, re-emerging in spring.

Thank you @ctrl-alt-nwo

Very beautiful plant. Has many species. Begonia can be found not only on the windowsills, but also in parks and flower beds. Bright and funny colors helped her to gain popularity. It got its name from the name of Michel Begona, who at the end of the XVII century discovered an unknown flower on the Antilles and described it. Today, the natural habitat of the plant is America, Asia and Africa, but you can grow it at home in almost any part of the world

https://klumba.guru/komnatnye-rasteniya/begoniya/vidy-komnatnyh-begoniy.html

Begonias are perhaps one of the most enduring and traditional houseplants you'll come across. They're easily loved but can equally be hated for being "old fashioned plants Grandmother used to grow".

Regardless, for the most part they're easy going, tolerant and somewhat forgiving of occasional poor care. The choice in variety is truly huge with close to 1000 species and thousands of cultivars. While almost all commercially grown Begonias are cheap to purchase some of the rarer varieties could set you back a little.

Broadly, the type of Begonia you can grow as a houseplant will fall into one of two categories. There are the foliage types, which are grown primarily for their aesthetically pleasing and unusual leaf shapes, colorings and markings. There are so many varieties and different looking foliage Begonias to pick from, so just choose the patterns you like best when purchasing.

Begonia is a genus of perennial flowering plants in the family Begoniaceae. The genus contains more than 1,800 different plant species. The Begonias are native to moist subtropical and tropical climates. Some species are commonly grown indoors as ornamental houseplants in cooler climates. In cooler climates some species are cultivated outside in summertime for their bright colourful flowers, which have sepals but no petals.

With 1,839 species, Begonia is the fifth-largest angiosperm genus. The species are terrestrial (sometimes epiphytic) herbs or undershrubs, and occur in subtropical and tropical moist climates, in South and Central America, Africa, and southern Asia. Terrestrial species in the wild are commonly upright-stemmed, rhizomatous, or tuberous. The plants are monoecious, with unisexual male and female flowers occurring separately on the same plant; the male contains numerous stamens, and the female has a large inferior ovary and two to four branched or twisted stigmas. In most species, the fruit is a winged capsule containing numerous minute seeds, although baccate fruits are also known. The leaves, which are often large and variously marked or variegated, are usually asymmetric (unequal-sided).

Begonia, Beautiful Flowers with Charming Leaves

Begonia is a plant that is famous for its beautiful flowers and charming leaves. Another advantage is that this plant is easy to care for both indoor plants and outdoor plants. In short, this plant is an amazing plant. There are several types of begonias that are interesting to have.

Begonia is a genus of perennial flowering plants in the Begoniaceae family. The genus contains 1,795 different plant species. Native plants in Saerah are humid subtropical and tropical regions. Some species commonly planted indoors as ornamental plants in cold climates. In cold climates some species that are cultivated outside in summer have bright colorful flowers, which have sepals but no petals.

More than 1,000 species of begonias are part of a complicated classification system based on flowers, propagation and leaf methods. Some begonias are grown only for their fantastic colors and foliage forms and either not flowering or mediocre flowers. American Begonias Society classifies these plants into several types:

like sugar cane / cane-like: Cane comes from begonias which grows mostly for its heart-shaped leaves and gray-green.
begonia-angel-wing.jpg

Shrub-like form: compact and tight leaf begonias up to 3 inch in size
begonia-semak-2.jpg
begonia-tuberous.jpg
tuber / tuberous root: Shiny leaves and will die again when the temperature drops or changes season.
begonia-berimpang.jpg

rhizomatous: leaves on begonias are sensitive to water and must be watered from below.
begonia
begonia-daun-lilin.jpg
waxy leaf / semperflorens: smooth waxy leaves and green, red or bronze
begonia-rex.jpg

leafy Rex: The heart-shaped leaf and the most striking producer of foliage

As one of the favorite plants, begonias are very suitable to have. Consider planting begonias as hanging plants in a room or plant in the yard of the house. Although it is an annual plant that must always be replanted, planting begonias is easy and satisfying.

@ctrl-alt-nwo, For sure Begonias is reflecting as perfect for Baskets. And in my opinion we rarely see Multicolour Leaves and these are just beautiful to watch. And this will be perfect if we hang it because in that way it can spread the Welcoming essence. And i strongly believe that without nature we are incomplete and nature completes us because nature plays great role in every phase. And in my opinion that's why people develop the Art Of Gardening because in that way they enjoy the natural essence and also they explore the plants, and whenever we witness growth of plants then that gives the humbling effect.

Wishing you an great day and stay blessed. 🙂

bégonia
A very large family of flowering plants and decorative foliage, the tuberous begonias discussed here are very popular and very easy to grow.

The lustrous foliage is more or less dark green, sometimes purple. The harbor is either erect or drooping, and the vegetation is about 30 cm high. The flowers have very varied forms, simple, semi-double or double, in the form of camellia, peony or carnation, with petals sometimes curly, tense or cut. Flowering starts running
Begonias fear frost and must be removed in autumn as soon as the foliage is grilled by the first frosts
Remove the soil bulbs using a transplanter, remove the excess soil and the remains of foliage,
and let the bulbs stand in the sun before storing them until the following spring in a frost-free room

Do the same for begonias grown in pots. In the following spring, you will be able to start bulb cultivation again and enjoy your begonias again.

Begonias are marketed in the form of bulbs, called tubers, between February and May
They plant outdoors when the risk of frost has passed, late April early May.

Begonias are afraid of full sun, preferring to grow in a semi-shaded area, in a well-drained, fertile soil with some moisture.
Plant begonias in pots


Begonias are traditionally grown in potées and jardinières
on shaded terraces and balconies. After draining the bottom of the pot with a layer of about 5 cm of expanded clay, fill the container with an earthy mixture of one-third of sieved topsoil, one-third of geranium-type compost and one third of peat.

Well-grown begonias do not fear pests or diseases, although powdery mildew can sometimes attack foliage through its white felting. They should be treated with a fungicide.

bogonias are a favorite of mine! awesome...and thanks as always for the support.

You're welcome my friend !

Begonias brighten up shady areas with their big, beautiful blooms. While most flowering plants require at least a half day of full sun, begonias actually prefer growing in the shade and will bloom continuously from summer to fall.

You can choose upright double begonias (for window boxes, flower pots and garden beds) or cascading varieties (for planters and hanging baskets). With so many options, begonias make it easy to dress up any shady porch, patio or deck.

Hey @ctrl-alt-nwo hope you are fine.
Begonia is very beautiful and attractive plant. But i have a little confusion about the flowers of Begonia, you write that the flower of Begonia plants are have cololurful sepals but not petals, But today i read an artile which describe that the flower has two pairs of sepals and petals. Can you help me with that confusion?
Here is the link https://www.britannica.com/plant/begonia

·

Begonias come in many varieties, some have more sepals than petals, and some have more petals than sepals. I guess that to be more accurate, it could be said that the colour in Begonias is due to a combination of sepals and petals. Does that clarify it for you ?

Yes thank you for clarification, now i got it.

Begonias have been favored for shade gardens for years and the large-flowered tuberous varieties represent royal blood. These have much bigger blooms and greater plant strength than the seed-grown types, which tend to be small, fragile and often a bit fussy looking. Like true queens, tuberous begonias aren't inclined to relinquish their throne after a single season. These tubers are easy to lift and store for many years of magnificent displays. We know a woman who has been growing the same begonia tubers for almost 10 years. Ever wanted to rub elbowimages.jpeg.

Find a location where the soil drains well. If there are still water puddles 5-6 hours after a hard rain, scout out another site. Or amend the soil with the addition of organic material to raise the level 2"-3" to improve the drainage. Peat moss, compost, ground bark or decomposed manure all work well and are widely available. While begonias prefer a slightly moist soil, they wiill not survive in soggy soil.

Begonia is a very beautiful and amazing flower that conquers gardeners with its magical shape and the diverse colors of the flower. These flowers can be seen in almost every home and garden. They decorate various recreation areas, squares, parks, apartments and balconies.

The flower is also called always flowering. Its name was due to the long flowering time. Begonia is presented in the form of a perennial shrub, which has a thick stalk of a large size, and the leaves have a delicate and smooth surface.

Begonias of this species are very powerful and large plants. The length of such a flower can reach three meters. Her tenacious shoots are always pulled up and cling to various parts of any material, living and nonliving. Flowering is simply amazing in its beauty. But because of the large length of the plant in room conditions, such begonia does not please everyone.

Wax begonia, the more popular variety of begonia, can be found in sizes to fit just about any space (from as small as 6 inches to nearly 3 feet tall). The larger varieties are ideal for landscaping, and when planted en masse create a dramatic effect. Smaller begonia varieties are well-suited for container gardens, and they won't crowd out your other plants.

Flower shapes are just as diverse as begonia plant sizes. Some plants showcase single flowers with just one row of petals, while others have double blooms with numerous rows of petals.

Begonias

Looking for something to add colour and interest to your garden or room? Begonias are an excellent choice.

Bergonias are perennial plants known for their spectacular flowers and foliage.

The genus Begonia (which is both the botanical and common name) belongs to the Begoniaceae family. There are over 1200 species of Begonia, growing best in tropical or sub tropical climates. Begonia are also a popular choice in cooler climates as an indoor plant - a great way to brighten up a room.

Begonias hybridise easily and even species from separate continents have been bred to produce hybrid cultivars. Hence there is a huge range of cultivars available.

Begonias are an obvious choice to grow in a semi shaded or shaded area. They are well suited to a wide variety of climates, though excessive cold (eg. frost), direct sunlight or excessive dryness can kill or severely damage most types of begonias. Many will grow well as indoor plants; some are more commonly grown in a shade house or fernery; and others are grown as bedding plants.

BIOLOGY OF BEGONIAS

Widespread, occurring naturally in the tropics and sub tropics of both hemispheres.
More common on continents than on the Pacific Islands.
Includes shrubs and low herbaceous plants (sometimes climbing).
Commonly succulent (soft) wooded, but sometimes more woody.
Most are perennial.
Roots can be either bulbous, rhizomes, tubers or fibrous rooted.
Leaves vary greatly in shape, size and colour; and are usually alternate along the stem.
Flowers usually white, pink, red, orange or yellow usually occurring in axillary cymes.
Male flowers have 2-4 sepals and 0-2 petals.
Female flowers have 2-5 equal tepals (NB: a tepal is like a petal or sepal, but not clearly one or the other).
Fruit is a capsule or very occasionally berry like.

CULTURAL NEEDS

Most begonias respond best to warm, moist conditions. The ideal temperature range is 15 to 26 Celsius though most will tolerate range is 15 to 26 degrees Celsius though most will tolerate temperatures as high as 40C and as low as 5C - some even lower.

All begonias prefer well drained soil rich in compost or organic matter and some like some degree of shade. Semperflorens and tree begonias however, tolerate more light than the others. In cooler climates, too much shade can reduce flowering, while in hot areas, too much sun will burn the foliage. All grow well in semi–shade or half–shade.

Begonia
begonia shutterstock_133587650.jpg

Begonias are warm-climate plants from a huge genus, most of which are valued for their ability to provide long-lasting color in shady or low-light situations. Some throw large, lush flowers in extravagant colors (see our Blackmore & Landon strains), others make their statement with beautifully marked foliage that has the beauty of flowers but lasts longer (such as Rex Begonias), and the best recent introductions offer compelling fragrance as well. Each summer our head gardener curates a colorful display of Begonia flowers at our store and gardens in Connecticut.

All Begonias want good drainage, moderate temperatures, and protection from direct sun.

https://www.whiteflowerfarm.com/begonias.html

Begonias is a amazing plant . Green and brown leaves , red flowers , all are giving beautiful look to the plant . Good plant for home and street decoration .

Begonia
There are some 1500 species of begonias and, by some estimates, more than ten thousand named cultivars and hybrids. To simplify matters, they are divided by horticulturists into informal groups, based mainly on their growth habits.

Some tuberous begonias (especially those in the Tuberhybrida group) are used as bedding and border plants that must be lifted in autumn and kept dry during the winter if they are to see another summer. Unless new plants are to be sown each spring, the tubers should be dug up, dried, dusted with fungicide (flowers of sulfur is fine) and stored until spring when they are replanted, convex side down.


For tuberous begonias grown in containers in the greenhouse or as house plants, water must be withheld during the winter dormant period, but the tubers may be left in their pots. (Tip the pot on its side.) You can create larger flowers and prolong the flowering period of tuberous begonias by pinching out the two smaller female flowers that grow on either side of the male flower.

An Introduction to Begonias
Identifying the 7 Types of Begonias and Growing Tips

Begonias are among the most popular of cultivated plants, indoors or outdoors. These lovely plants are grown for both their leaf forms and their blooms, depending on the type of begonia. In some areas of the world, the wax begonia is easily the most popular bedding plant, while serious plant collectors still go to great lengths to hunt down beautiful foliage begonias.

An Introduction to Begonias
According to the American Begonia Society, the Begonia genus of plants includes about 1,500 named species and several thousand hybrids. From a cultivation point of view, begonias have all the ingredients for successful hybridization-they cross readily, they have striking variability in the genus, and their ranks include everything from durable landscape plants to delicate specimens.

Botanically speaking, begonias are terrestrial understory herbs native to tropical regions around the world, including Central and South America, Asia, and Africa. Today, most begonias in cultivation are hybrids, so they cannot be grown from seeds. Fortunately, however, they readily reproduce from leaf cuttings or rhizome division, so it's easy to rapidly increase your ​begonia collection.

7 Types of Begonias
Because of the wide variety of begonia types, enthusiasts divide the genus into different types to help keep them straight. Brad Thompson, a begonia expert, offers the following divisions for begonias:

  1. Cane type. These grow from straight, sometimes brittle stems, and are prized for both their blooms and their foliage. The very popular and beautiful angel wing and dragon wing begonias are cane-type begonias. These hybrids generally feature clusters of pendant flowers that appear throughout the year.
  2. Shrub type. Shrub begonias grow in mounding piles from multiple stems. They range in size from small to huge plants that would dwarf a full-grown man. These are not as common as cane-type begonias.
  3. Rhizomatous. Rhizomatous begonias grow from thick underground rhizomes. These types of begonias are popular for their beautiful leaf shapes and colors, with leaves that can attain massive size under the right conditions. These are very popular plants and include some of the most commonly cultivated indoor begonias.
  4. Semperflorens. These are the common wax begonias, so called because of the waxy appearance of their leaves. In temperate areas, these are grown as annuals, but they are perennial shrubs in warmer areas. Wax begonias have been bred with pink, white and red flowers, either in single or double blooms. Although they are most commonly grown outdoors, they can be grown indoors.
  5. Tuberous. Tuberous begonias are primarily grown for their flowers, which are often show-worthy. They have a short dormant period in the fall and winter. In terms of plant structure, tuberous begonias include trailing types and upright plants.
  6. Trailing. Trailing begonias are great for hanging baskets. They feature pendant growth with beautiful displays of flowers, sometimes year-round. Most pendant begonias have bright-green leaves.
  7. Rex. Rex begonias are actually a type of rhizomatous begonias, but they deserve special mention for their showy and beautiful leaves. Rex begonias offer a truly bewildering array of leaf shapes and colors, including greens, red, purple, silver, white, and many others. These types of begonias have insignificant flowers, but the leaves make up for their lack of interesting blooms.

The sheer diversity on offer means there is likely something for everyone. Some of the popular names you'll find on the plant labels are "Wax Begonia", "Angel Wing Begonia" and "Rex Begonia".

Broadly, the type of Begonia you can grow as a houseplant will fall into one of two categories. There are the foliage types, which are grown primarily for their aesthetically pleasing and unusual leaf shapes, colorings and markings. There are so many varieties and different looking foliage Begonias to pick from, so just choose the patterns you like best when purchasing.

The second option are the flowering types with their impressive blooms. The leaves might not be much to look at this time around, but the blooms more than make up for this. Again pick a plant you like the look of choosing one with only a few flowers open and plenty of buds to prolong the display.

Once you've either a flowering or foliage type of Begonia it's further divided into groups based on how it looks or how it grows. The most popular types are are Cane, Rhizomatous and Tuberous Begonias.The care requirements are quite similar, but each will have a little difference that you need to be aware of and respect for a successful long term relationship.

Some throw large, lush flowers in extravagant colors (see our Blackmore & Landon strains), others make their statement with beautifully marked foliage that has the beauty of flowers but lasts longer (such as Rex Begonias), and the best recent introductions offer compelling fragrance as well. Each summer our head gardener curates a colorful display of Begonia flowers at our store and gardens in Connecticut.

Tuberous begonias, which hail from South America and South Africa, are like a gaggle of girls at the prom: some are in innocent ruffled white, their picotee petals edged in hot pink; others are dressed to kill in come-hither blood-red.

When & Where to Plant Begonias
Light: Begonias are classic shade-lovers that are only reliable perennials in zones 9 and 10. Most are grown as annuals in all other zones. Some newer varieties can tolerate direct sun, especially if it's morning sun. In cooler areas, begonias can tolerate more sun than in hot climates. Most like bright, dappled light to grow their best.

Soil: Begonias grow best in light, fertile, well-drained soil. Begonias are very susceptible to root and stem rot when exposed to cold, wet soils, so proper drainage is essential.


Spacing: Plant begonias 8 to 12 inches apart if growing wax begonia types in garden beds. Tuberous begonias grow from tubers that should be spaced about 1 foot apart.


Planting: Plant begonias for the garden in spring after danger of frost has passed. Begonias are very sensitive to frost and cold, wet weather, so don't hurry to plant them outdoors. Even temperatures below 50F can damage young begonias depending on the type you're growing.

Begonias are known for their brilliant flowers and fancy foliage. Begonias are relatively easy for the homeowner to take care of, whether they are planted indoors or outside. However for the grower, each species of begonia has different cultural guidelines that need to be followed to ensure successful propagation and growing. Know the details and growing requirements of the begonia varieties that you are planning to grow and produce those crops that will perform best in your greenhouse environment.

Begonias have been favored for shade gardens for years and the large-flowered tuberous varieties represent royal blood. These have much bigger blooms and greater plant strength than the seed-grown types, which tend to be small, fragile and often a bit fussy looking. Like true queens, tuberous begonias aren't inclined to relinquish their throne after a single season. These tubers are easy to lift and store for many years of magnificent displays. We know a woman who has been growing the same begonia tubers for almost 10 years.

Hardiness Zones: 10a, 10b, 11a, 11b
Water Category: Average
Uses: Container
Landscape
Uses Notes:
Use in shaded gardens or patio pots

Maintenance Notes:
Tuberous begonias can be quite susceptible to a disease called powdery mildew. To better understand how to prevent, diagnose, and treat the disease read the information below.

Symptoms

Even though there are several types of powdery mildew fungi, they all produce similar symptoms on plant parts. Powdery mildews are characterized by spots or patches of white to grayish, talcum-powder-like growth. Tiny, pinhead-sized, spherical fruiting structures that are first white, later yellow-brown and finally black, may be present singly or in a group. These are the cleistothecia or overwintering bodies of the fungus.

The disease is most commonly observed on the upper sides of the leaves. It also affects the bottom sides of leaves, young stems, buds, flowers and young fruit. Infected leaves may become distorted, turn yellow with small patches of green, and fall prematurely. Infected buds may fail to open.

Conditions That Favor the Disease

The severity of the disease depends on many factors: variety of the host plant, age and condition of the plant, and weather conditions during the growing season.

Powdery mildews are severe in warm, dry climates. This is because the fungus does not need the presence of water on the leaf surface for infection to occur. However, the relative humidity of the air does need to be high for spore germination. Therefore, the disease is common in crowded plantings where air circulation is poor and in damp, shaded areas.

Incidence of infection increases as relative humidity rises to 90 percent, but it does not occur when leaf surfaces are wet (e.g., in a rain shower). Young, succulent growth usually is more susceptible than older plant tissues.

Flowers that are very beautiful are various colors that add to the beauty of the city corner

Begonias are a broad group of shade-loving flowers. The wax-leafed begonia is probably the most popular annual for shade gardens and container growing. They’re one of the few annual plants that flower well in part shade. Not only are the flowers attractive in shades of white, pink, and red, but some varieties have red or bronze-tinged, glossy leaves making them an attractive plant even when they aren’t in flower. This low growing plant will flower right up to frost and can be brought indoors to continue flowering in a sunny window.

Begonias hybridise easily and even species from separate continents have been bred to produce hybrid cultivars. Hence there is a huge range of cultivars available.

Begonias are an obvious choice to grow in a semi shaded or shaded area. They are well suited to a wide variety of climates, though excessive cold (eg. frost), direct sunlight or excessive dryness can kill or severely damage most types of begonias. Many will grow well as indoor plants; some are more commonly grown in a shade house or fernery; and others are grown as bedding plants.

Begonia Basics
Begonias are tropical perennials, which means that in frost-free climates, they can live (and sometimes bloom) all year round. They like the conditions that appeal to many tropical plants.

Light: A bright spot with a little sun protection. Morning sun (and a little afternoon shade) is perfect. Wax begonias can tolerate more sun than other types, and the ones with bronze-colored leaves are the most sun-tolerant of all. Tuberous begonias prefer more shade and less heat, so we often see them on display in late summer.

Begonia

Begonias have been around for ages, and with good reason: This easy-to-grow annual does well in a variety of conditions and needs little to thrive. Provide it with light shade, rich well-drained soil, ample water, and plenty of fertilizer—and you’ll be rewarded with stunning flowers and foliage

LIGHT:
Part Sun, Shade, Sun
TYPE:
Annual
HEIGHT:
From 6 inches to 3 feet
WIDTH:
6-12 inches
FLOWER COLOR:
Orange, Pink, White, Yellow
SEASONAL FEATURES:
Fall Bloom, Spring Bloom, Summer Bloom
SPECIAL FEATURES:
Good for Containers, Low Maintenance

All Shapes and Sizes
Wax begonia, the more popular variety of begonia, can be found in sizes to fit just about any space (from as small as 6 inches to nearly 3 feet tall). The larger varieties are ideal for landscaping, and when planted en masse create a dramatic effect. Smaller begonia varieties are well-suited for container gardens, and they won't crowd out your other plants.

Flower shapes are just as diverse as begonia plant sizes. Some plants showcase single flowers with just one row of petals, while others have double blooms with numerous rows of petals.

A Full Spectrum of Colors
In the past, begonia color choices were generally limited to green or bronze foliage with white, pink, or red flowers. But today, begonia colors are much more diverse.

In the wax family alone, you'll find multiple shades in the white to red spectrum. And in the begonia boliviensis family, there are even more options, including warm yellows, reds, oranges, whites, and pinks. Begonias look gorgeous in window boxes!

How to Grow Begonias

If you have shade, you must grow begonias. The 'wax' or bedding plant begonia is most common and adds effortless color under trees and in shade gardens. However, you can also mix and match begonias with unique leaf colors and shapes, such as Rex and Angel Wing begonias, in containers and shady beds. Tuberous begonias have stunning, colorful flowers, especially when grown in hanging pots on a deck or patio.

When & Where to Plant Begonias
Light: Begonias are classic shade-lovers that are only reliable perennials in zones 9 and 10. Most are grown as annuals in all other zones. Some newer varieties can tolerate direct sun, especially if it's morning sun. In cooler areas, begonias can tolerate more sun than in hot climates. Most like bright, dappled light to grow their best.

Soil: Begonias grow best in light, fertile, well-drained soil. Begonias are very susceptible to root and stem rot when exposed to cold, wet soils, so proper drainage is essential.

Spacing: Plant begonias 8 to 12 inches apart if growing wax begonia types in garden beds. Tuberous begonias grow from tubers that should be spaced about 1 foot apart.

Planting: Plant begonias for the garden in spring after danger of frost has passed. Begonias are very sensitive to frost and cold, wet weather, so don't hurry to plant them outdoors. Even temperatures below 50F can damage young begonias depending on the type you're growing.

begonia-tuber.jpg

How to Grow Begonias Throughout the Season
Growth Habit: Wax begonias grow 6 to 24 inches tall and 12 to 18 inches wide depending on the variety. Some are upright growing while others are trailing. Wax begonias are often grown as bedding plants in a shady annual garden or in containers. Tuberous begonias can be upright or trailing depending on the variety. Tuberous begonias can be grown in the ground, but more often are grown in containers and hanging baskets. One plant per 12 inch diameter container is usually sufficient.

Staking: Trailing varieties of tuberous begonias are meant to creep and need no staking. Nor do the wax begonias. Upright tuberous begonias, though, can benefit from staking so the flower stems stand tall to make viewing the beautiful flowers easier. When upright varieties are 4 to 6 inches tall, place a narrow bamboo or metal stake in the soil near the main stem. Fasten the stem to the stake with plant ties or garden twine, being careful not to damage the stem. Add more ties to provide ongoing support as the plant grows.

Watering: Begonias need moist soil, but are very susceptible to rotting under wet conditions. Water less frequently with wax begonias in the ground if rains are regular. Water containers of wax and tuberous begonias more frequently, but always watch to not over water or stems might rot off.

Fertilizing: Amend the soil before planting wax begonias in the ground with compost. Begonias are heavy feeders, so fertilize plants in the ground and in containers monthly with an organic balanced fertilizer. For container begonias use a liquid fertilizer, so the nutrients are more readily available.

Mulching: Since begonias are susceptible to rot due to wet conditions, mulching should be done carefully. Use bark mulch around plants to preserve soil moisture and prevent weeds from growing. Keep mulch a few inches away from the succulent begonia stems or they may rot. Begonias in containers don't need mulching.

Trimming & Pruning: Pinch back wax begonias after their second set of true leaves form. This will create a bushier plant with more flowers. Pinch plants again in summer if they become leggy or if you want to stimulate new growth. Deadhead wax begonias to help keep them flowering and tidy up the plant. Some newer varieties are self cleaning, meaning that they drop spent flowers and don't need deadheading.

Pinch back the growth tips of tuberous begonias when the new growth is about 3 to 6 inches long in the spring. Pinch back to the second healthy bud from the tip and repeat this process monthly until mid summer to encourage bushiness and more flowers. Deadhead regularly to not only clean up the tuberous begonia's look, but also remove rotting old flowers that might infect the plants.

Begonia

Begonia is a genus of perennial flowering plants in the family Begoniaceae. The genus contains more than 1,800 different plant species. The Begonias are native to moist subtropical and tropical climates. Some species are commonly grown indoors as ornamental houseplants in cooler climates. In cooler climates some species are cultivated outside in summertime for their bright colourful flowers, which have sepals but no petals.

Description
With 1,839 species, Begonia is the fifth-largest angiosperm genus.[1][2] The species are terrestrial (sometimes epiphytic) herbs or undershrubs, and occur in subtropical and tropical moist climates, in South and Central America, Africa, and southern Asia. Terrestrial species in the wild are commonly upright-stemmed, rhizomatous, or tuberous. The plants are monoecious, with unisexual male and female flowers occurring separately on the same plant; the male contains numerous stamens, and the female has a large inferior ovary and two to four branched or twisted stigmas. In most species, the fruit is a winged capsule containing numerous minute seeds, although baccate fruits are also known. The leaves, which are often large and variously marked or variegated, are usually asymmetric (unequal-sided).

Cultivation

The different groups of begonias have different cultural requirements, but most species come from tropical regions, so they and their hybrids require warm temperatures. Most are forest understory plants and require bright shade; few will tolerate full sun, especially in warmer climates. In general, begonias require a well-drained growing medium that is neither constantly wet nor allowed to dry out completely. Many begonias will grow and flower year-round except for tuberous begonias, which usually have a dormant period. During this dormant period, the tubers can be stored in a cool, dry place. Begonias of the semperflorens group (or wax begonias) are frequently grown as bedding plants outdoors. A recent group of hybrids derived from this group is marketed as "Dragonwing" begonias; they are much larger both in leaf and in flower. Tuberous begonias are frequently used as container plants. Although most Begonia species are tropical or subtropical in origin, the Chinese species B. grandis is hardy to USDA hardiness zone 6 and is commonly known as the "hardy begonia". Most begonias can be grown outdoors year-round in subtropical or tropical climates, but in temperate climates, begonias are grown outdoors as annuals, or as house or greenhouse plants.

Begonia is a genus of perennial flowering plants in the family Begoniaceae. The genus contains more than 1,800 different plant species. The Begonias are native to moist subtropical and tropical climates. Some species are commonly grown indoors as ornamental houseplants in cooler climates.

How to Grow: Begonia

Learn about growing begonias including information on the different varieties.

Begonia spp

Other Name

wax begonia

Sun Requirements

part sun, part shade

Bloom Period and Seasonal Color

Summer until frost in colors such as white, pink, coral, salmon, and red.

Begonias are a broad group of shade-loving flowers. The wax-leafed begonia is probably the most popular annual for shade gardens and container growing. They’re one of the few annual plants that flower well in part shade. Not only are the flowers attractive in shades of white, pink, and red, but some varieties have red or bronze-tinged, glossy leaves making them an attractive plant even when they aren’t in flower. This low growing plant will flower right up to frost and can be brought indoors to continue flowering in a sunny window.

Where, When and How to Plant

While you can grow wax begonias from seed started indoors 12 weeks before your last frost date, most home gardeners prefer to buy transplants from the local garden center. Although they grow well in shade, too much shade will inhibit flowering. Ideally they will get a few hours of morning sun to flower best. Plant seedlings in well-drained, moist soil in a part sun or shade location after all danger of frost has passed. Space plants 8 inches apart in beds and closer together in containers.

Begonia.jpg

Growing Tips

Keep the plants well watered, but be careful not to overwater. During our humid, sometimes rainy summers, overwatered begonia stems and roots can often rot. Water more frequently when grown in hanging baskets or containers. Fertilize monthly with an organic plant food.

Begonias are perhaps one of the most enduring and traditional houseplants you'll come across. They're easily loved but can equally be hated for being "old fashioned plants Grandmother used to grow".

Regardless, for the most part they're easy going, tolerant and somewhat forgiving of occasional poor care. The choice in variety is truly huge with close to 1000 species and thousands of cultivars. While almost all commercially grown Begonias are cheap to purchase some of the rarer varieties could set you back a little.

Begonias are among the most popular of cultivated plants, indoors or outdoors. These lovely plants are grown for both their leaf forms and their blooms, depending on the type of begonia. In some areas of the world, the wax begonia is easily the most popular bedding plant, while serious plant collectors still go to great lengths to hunt down beautiful foliage begonias.

Love these blooms! Be that as it may, they are very costly here and hard to keep up in great condition! Less demanding to have orchids as opposed to hanging bin!
