Product Details

Product Details

Our fondness for Tuberous Begonias is well known, but we also grow and love other representatives of this diverse genus. Dragon Wing® Pink is part of a heat-tolerant series and has wing-like, glossy green leaves. It's an excellent companion, in containers and hanging baskets, for other annuals. Perennial in Zone 10.

HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

WHEN WE SHIP

We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Unless you specify otherwise, fertilizers, tools, and other non-plant items are shipped with your plants or bulbs. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.

OUR GUARANTEE

We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

great plant

dillweed from middletown,nj

This plant kept on blooming and blooming all season long. I gave it practically no care other than planting it in a pot and perhaps fertilizing it once. The perfect plant in my opinion!

Not your mother's pink

phyjan from boise ID

Sat in a pot placed on concrete and baked in Idaho high desert sun all summer at the edge of a filtered shady area. Planted with white mandevillea, it was a show stopper pink. The combination was outstanding and the begonia put up with desert-like conditions with aplomb and vigor.

Dragon Wing is a dependable delight.

Garden Delights from Northern Virginia

The foliage and flower color are great companions with large leafed coleus.

Blooms all summer with minimal care

Barbara from Madison, CT

This is a great plant for annual containers. It looks very pretty, and just needs to be watered every few days. Highly recommended.

Giant Begonia

Hope from Charleston,WV

I like to use it in a big pot, 24" across with other plants to add slightly different colors. I put a Tropicanna in this year, was spectacular.

Pronunciation: beg-own'ee-uh     

Fibrous Begonias are a diverse group known for their colorful flowers, compact shape, and rounded green, bronze, or variegated leaves. Native to tropical and subtropical regions, they are grown as annuals in cooler areas where they are not hardy. A widely popular bedding and container plant, fibrous Begonias provide a continuous display of color throughout the growing season. With no deadheading of spent blooms required, these Begonias are low maintenance plants making them carefree and well adapted to a variety of garden settings.

Light/Watering: Fibrous Begonias flower well in partial shade to full sun. Bronze-leaved varieties are more suited to full sun. Water moderately once or twice a week during the warmer season.

Fertilizer/Soil and pH: Plant in well-drained soil high in organic matter. Use an all-purpose fertilizer for annuals monthly during the warmer season.

Pests/Diseases: Fibrous Begonias can occasionally be troubled by slugs. Use slug bait, dishes of beer, and diatomaceous earth to discourage them.

Companions: An exceptional container plant, fibrous Begonias pair well with colorful foliage plants such as Caladium, Coleus, and Ipomoea. Or combine in mass plantings with Impatiens and Fuchsia in the garden.

End-of-Season Care: Can be brought indoors in winter in cold climates, and kept in a sunny window.
