Comments: This is an excellent begonia to grow in containers during the late winter and early spring before temperatures rise above 80 degrees F. Excellent for hanging baskets and wall plantings. Provide morning sunlight and a fertile, moist potting soil for best performance. This begonia cannot tolerate freezing temperatures so in colder parts of the country grow it as an annual. This begonia produces an abundance of bright colored flowers in varying shades of pink and salmon-pink colors.
