Tuberous begonias are popular for their beautiful flowers which come in a variety of colors and forms. Red, orange, yellow, white, salmon and pink blooms may be single or double; they may be plain, ruffled or toothed; their petals may have margins, crests or blotches of contrasting color. Tuberous begonias bloom throughout the summer, thriving in shady spots where few other plants with long bloom periods and showy flowers can grow. They are often used as container plants on patios and porches, in hanging baskets, and as bedding plants.

Tuberous Begonias grow in partial shade but usually not so well in deep shade or full sun. Provide a well-drained soil. The plants need frequent watering and fertilization but an excess of either causes flower bud drop. The plants are quite brittle and staking helps them tolerate violent weather. The single female flowers are removed before seed forms to keep the plant blooming. The females are on either side of the double male flowers.

These tough little compact garden plants reach barely a foot high but provide almost continuous color during the warm months of the year. These plants are sensitive to extreme winters.
