Rex begonias are an incredible addition to the shade garden. Their showy deeply margined winged and swirled leaves come in an amazing array of vivid colors. Easily combined in mixed planters or used by themselves as focal points. They look wonderful combined with small ferns and ivies. Most have fairly insignificant light pink to white blooms. Grow in a bright partially shaded location for best color. Plant in fertile well draining soil, they should become slightly dry between waterings.
