I bought a mix of colors (all of which have bloomed a cream with coral sepals so far) and a red.
Begonias seem to withstand irregular watering and do well in any but the extremes (full sun or total shade). They are forgiving. All of us need a bit of forgiveness for our time-rushed, erratic gardening methods these days!
With a fungal diseases spreading through impatiens, I predict the begonia genus will only become more popular with gardeners. This winter I will attempt to grow some from seed, hopefully collected from these.
