Dragon Wing Begonia

Dragon Wing Begonia

What annual is low maintenance, requires no deadheading and blooms until frost?

It's the Dragon Wing begonia, a cross between a cane-type Angel Wing begonia and a Wax Begonia.

This hardworking annual doesn't require much from you and will give its best all summer long. Just follow a few tips and success will be yours!

 

LIGHT: Place in dappled shade, part sun or full shade. It appreciates bright light but not direct sun that might burn its tender, glossy leaves.

WATER: Water regularly when top 2-3 inches of soil is dry.

FLOWERS: Arching stems allow red or pink flowers to hang among the glossy green or bronze leaves. Flowers bloom until frost and the plant's shape only looks better as summer goes on. NO need to deadhead either.

HABIT: Mounding and spreading... perfect for containers, hanging baskets or garden borders.

MATURE SIZE: 15" to 18" wide tall and wide.

 


What’s the buzz? The sound of summer. Filling your garden with flowering plants that bees like is the perfect way to a part of the cycle of nature. Bees are hardworking insects—pollinating our crops and flowers for us and feeding themselves and their community at the same time. And, don’t forget the honey—one of nature’s simplest pleasures.
