This shade-loving flower appreciates a good container, which makes them a good option for people with a limited amount of growing space.

Why We Love It

These low-maintenance plants forgive even the most obtuse gardener while adding a bright pop of color to window boxes, beds, and bouquets.


Light shade and moist soil keep begonias looking sharp.

Culinary Chameleon

Some varieties of begonias are edible-- the stems taste like rhubarb and the sap can be used to make cheese.

Face The Music

On one of the Grateful Dead's most popular songs, "Scarlet Begonias," Jerry Garcia sings, "she wore scarlet begonias, tucked into her curls/ I knew right away she was not like other girls."
