|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. This begonia grows from a creeping rhizome. The foliage is very attractive, featuring large, smooth, unincised leaves. The flowers are white with pink edges and bloom winter to spring. This plant enjoys filtered light but can take some sun in winter. Pinching tips and pruning outer stems in the growing season gives a bushier plant, good for hanging baskets. Soil should ideally be moist. Begonias grow very well in peat-based compost also.
