Planting Tips & Instructions 
    • Growing:
    • Begonias are bulbs that thrive best in partial shade. The hotter your growing region, the more shade they prefer.
    • For best results (stronger stems, fewer but more spectacular flowers), pinch off all but 2 to 4 stems while the plants are young and developing.
    • Begonias generally take from 10 to 12 weeks to bloom and will then bloom until the season ends.

    • Taking Care:
    • Keep your Begonias healthy by removing dead flowers, leaves and stems and fertilize once a month.
    • Water as needed during active growth periods, but allow the soil to become dry between watering.

    • Winterizing:
    • Begonias cannot tolerate frost.
    • In fall, once flowering ceases and before the first frost, bring in Begonias for the winter. After drying a day or two, dug tubers can be stored in layers of vermiculite or sawdust at approximately 40 °F to 45 °F (5 °C to 7 °C).

While every effort has been made to describe these plants accurately, please note that height, bloom time, and color may differ in various climates.
