Secrets to Success »
In your summer garden, feed this workhorse every two weeks. Ensure the soil is moist but well drained. If leaf edges appear reddish, provide water and fertilizer.
Perfect for hanging baskets, containers and window boxes, as well as landscape beds. In the hotter climes of the South or Southwest, provide filtered sun or shade. Dragon Wing begonia will bloom non-stop until frost.
