The Begonian - Volume 58


March/April 1991 

Of all the types of begonias, those know as shrub-like are probably the most varied and easiest to grow. They are grown chiefly for their interesting and beautiful foliage, with size, shape, colors, and leaf surfaces and textures in almost endless variety, although, as we shall see, the flowers have some interesting features too.



May/June 1991

Southern Florida has a climate unlike that of most of the country. Here Semperflorens are grown mostly as annuals during the cool season, reaching their peak in February. Tuberous begonias will not survive our summer heat. Among the distinctive big and colorful-leaved types for the beginning hobbyist, rhizomatous begonias are best suited as low growing landscape plants.




July/August 1991
