How can Scarlet Begonias be grown?
It is also important to find out where Scarlet Begonias are grown.
Begonias can be found in moist tropical and subtropical climates. In cooler climates, some species can be grown indoors as ornamental houseplants.
Are begonias able to come back each year? Begonias, like Impatiens and other perennials, are tender perennials that come back year after year. They are not considered annuals because they are gone forever when the first frost. Begonias can become leggy in deep shade conditions so make sure they have at least a few hours of sunshine.
People also ask if you can plant begonias in the ground.
Tuberous Begonias can grow in the ground underneath trees, in shaded areas of your garden or in containers that are placed in shaded areas on your porch, patio or yard.
Are begonias tolerant of sun or shade?
Morning sun is ideal, with a little shade in the afternoon. Wax begonias are more tolerant to sunlight than any other type, and those with bronze-colored leaves can tolerate the most sunshine. Tuberous begonias like more shade than heat and are often seen on display in the late summer. Soil: A light, rich, and humusy soil.
- Let the potting soil dry out slightly between watering during lower light and cooler temperatures of late fall and winter.
- If possible, use room temperature water that has been distilled.
- Mist the foliage of Rex (foliage) type begonias twice a week or provide high humidity to avoid leaf drop.
- Work a balanced fertilizer into the soil at planting time.
- Dilute a balanced liquid fertilizer with 1 part fertilizer to 3 parts water.
- Reduce the fertilizer application in late autumn to one dose a month.
