If you have been given this plant for your garden, great. If not, you can get a start from a friend or order from Plant Delights Nursery. I have had mine for years, and I cannot remember giving them any care except watering in very dry weather. But every time they creep out into the sun, the leaves scald, and I pull them out. I am not sure I have ever seen these for sale in a local nursery, as they are basically pass along plants. They transplant easily, as long a you get a good clump of roots. There are two named selections in the Plant Delights’ catalog (online), and I am sure they will do well here in Birmingham. While begonia seeds are so small I almost cannot see them, they do seem to spread to niches close to the parent clump, if there are good conditions for germination. The ones in the images above are from my friend Lousie’s garden, and they are in cool shady locations. The ones pictured in the wall I am sure are seedlings, but boy are they attractive. The pink flowers are beginning to put on a show, and both the foliage and flowers do well as short term cut flowers. Just remember, they like to be in water not florist foam (Oasis,etc). It is just fine to transplant these hardy begonias now, and you can enjoy this perennial for years to come.
