Begonias thrive in the shade and bloom all summer long, adding lavish color to shady spots. Plant begonias in containers amongst low-growing perennials, beneath the tree canopy, or hang along your porch rails and relax among the colorful flowers. These beauties produce huge, colorful blooms. Tuberous begonias are hardy in zones 8-11, but in cooler zones (3-7), they can be grown as annuals or brought indoors during winter. For earlier, larger blooms, start plants indoors and bring outside after the danger of frost has passed. Keep an eye on soil moisture in containers, as begonias like a moist humid environment. While begonias thrive in containers, they can be planted in the garden in rich, well-drained soil, in full to partial shade.
