These plants are versatile working in both sun or shade, which makes them a wonderful unifiying plant to use in both sun and shade beds. Unlike older begonias, these are quite vigorous. They can tolerate some drought conditions, but will look their best with more consistent moisure and regular feeding. They love the heat and are self cleaning so the plants look very clean. They do not need to be deadheaded to bloom all summer long. What's not to love!Double Up™ Red Begonia semperflorens 'LEGDBLRED' USPP 32,686, Can PBRAF
