Comments: Tuberous begonias grow best in midday and afternoon shade; otherwise the foliage will burn and turn brown from the edges. They do not like high summer temperture and humidity and do poorly where it is very hot. They come in a wide variety of colors, shapes, sizes, and textures. Double flowers are male and single ones are female. They can be grown year round where conditions are ideal, but do need a dormant period.
