Welcome back to day 2 of the 2015 A to Z Challenge. Today will be a favorite flower of mine that starts with the letter B, Begonia. In particular I want to share a type of Begonia that was a star during the five years I owned and operated a greenhouse business. When you decide which plants to offer you must keep in mind all settings and flower types to appeal to as many potential customers as possible.
The type of begonia I am featuring is something called a Non-Stop Begonia. It is a step further than the average begonias that are the traditional bedding plant. The bedding plant variety are heat tolerant and can be exposed to full sun and take a small amount of moisture to strive.
These flowers are so gorgeous and will reward you with beautiful blooms all summer and into the fall if you take proper care of them. Unlike the bedding plants of the family these will not thrive in the sun. They are definitely full shade or early morning sun plants.
