Begonia-bronze-red

Bronze Red Begonias have red blooms on dark, bronze foliage. Begonias flower throughout the summer up to the first frost. Few other annuals can beat begonias for hardiness and continuous flowering throughout the summer. These begonias are not restricted to a partial shade; they can be grown in full sun as well provided that they have enough water.

Begonias with bronze foliage perform better in the sunnier locations while the other green-leafed varieties should be planted in the shade. They prefer moist, well-drained, fertile soil.
