Answer: Tuberous begonias thrive under shady conditions but will wilt in a sunny bed. The begonias you saw at your school may have been fibrous rooted begonias, but even fibrous rooted begonias, need shade, or at least protection from hot afternoon sun. You may have to choose another plant - one that thrives in all day sunshine. Dahlias are spectacular, as are roses. Hope you'll consider one or both of these instead of begonias!
