Perfect Begonias

 Growing Begonias in Australia

These drought-tolerant perennials come in a variety of forms. DEBBIE McDONALD outlines the options, with tips from an expert who has grown begonias for 30 years. As exotic, succulent perennials hailing from tropical and subtropical regions, begonias are ideal plants for our gardens. During warmer months, you'll often see bedding, or semperflorens, begonias for sale or mass-planted in public gardens. They grow 15-30cm tall, with red, pink or white flowers and bronze to apple-green leaves.
