I discovered Flower Friday while visiting Lorilin@Bugbugbooks. I decided to start sharing some flower pictures from our gardens along with some information about them. Please check out Lorilin’s blog if you haven’t already for book reviews and more!
This week’s share:
These are wonderful for shady areas. We have a fire pit area which has mainly hostas and ferns growing around it, so these add a warm splash of color, and they bloom all summer long.
I’ve read that these can be overwintered, but honestly haven’t tried it. We live in a cold zone and these are just treated like annuals.
This species that we buy in spring aren’t tuberous. I’d love to try tuberous begonias in the future because of the many beautiful colors available; and the flowers are much larger too.
Scientific name: Begonia x semperflorens-cultorum
Higher classification: Begoniaceae
Perennial in zones 9-10
Native to subtropical and tropical climates
Thanks for checking out Flower Friday. What are you growing this year? Let’s chat below. Have a wonderful weekend!
