This dark-leaf variety of begonia is best for shady spots.


Begonia semperflorens
  • Type: Annual
  • Light: Part shade
  • Plant spacing: 9 inches
  • Plant size: 12 inches tall

These neat, mounded plants are perfect in strawberry jars, window boxes, and containers as well as flower beds. This dark-leafed variety is especially sun tolerant and needs plenty of light to develop the pretty leaf color. Expect free-flowering masses of color from each. Very easy to grow and maintain. Begonias need rich soil that should dry slightly between deep waterings. Those in sun will need more water.

Some Bonnie Plants varieties may not be available at your local stores, as we select and sell varieties best suited to the growing conditions in each region.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I over wintered these little lovelies in my garage. Took them out, trimmed and watered them, and they are growing and blooming. I live in North Dakota.
