I could not do without the dragon wing begonia for my garden although it is not a perennial in my area, I buy several pots of it to add lovely color to my shady places.

I also have used many of the other varieties of this great plant.

Begonias are a wonderful plant. There are so many varieties to choose from. I love the flowering tuberous and Reiger begonias, the wax begonias and wouldn't be without the Dragon Wings in my summer hanging baskets. They are just so floriferous and make such a statement. A new begonia to me last year called Sparks Will Fly was lovely with its dark foliage and orange flowers. I also love the Rexes with their fantastic leaves and patterns. Basically, I haven't met a begonia that I didn't like, lol.
