GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Begonias are tender perennials, grown for their colorful flowers and foliage.
  • Most begonias can be grown outdoors in pots, in the ground, or in hanging baskets in filtered light and moist, but well drained soil.
  • Where not hardy, grow as annuals or indoors as houseplants.
  • Most begonias can be propagated from leaf, stem or rhizome cuttings in addition to being sown from seed.
  • The low but upright ‘Orange Ruba’ begonia has many everblooming orange pendulous flowers and unincised green leaves.
  • The stem is cane-like with evenly spaced nodes.
