dragon wing begonia

This is a great bedding plant as well as a show stopper in a container. Large clusters of red or pink blooms are set atop lustrous green foliage. This plant will flower untill the first frost. Plant after the soil warms in the spring. Purchase from your local garden center. This will not take intense sun here in the Carolinas like the Wax Begonia.
