Begonia 'Charm' is a beautiful little plant, not only for the lovely little pink blooms, but also for the attractive variegated foliage. The leaves are a pretty chartreuse green with pink to creamy yellow splotches. 'Charm' makes a wonderful hanging basket or window box plant as well as a filler for mixed containers. It can be used as a bedding plant and can be grown as an annual in colder climates. Begonia 'Charm' requires a well draining potting medium and moist but not soggy soil.
