Family Begoniaceae (Begonia family)
Begonias are perennial plants, but many are grown as annuals. They are often grown in potted plants or in beds. Begonia flowers bloom in early summer through fall and are clustered and come in various colors such as white, yellow, orange, red, or pink. Leaves are sometimes multicolored.
Optimum conditions for growth
Begonias do best in filtered shade or bright indirect light. They require regular water, rich, well-drained soil and prefer some humidity.
