Baby Wing Begonia

Baby Wing Begonia is a heat- and stress-tolerant winner. This vigorous plant has an upright, mounded growth that is covered with blooms from late spring through frost. With smaller leaves than the popular Dragon Wing begonia, the Baby Wing begonia sports masses of pink or white flowers on upright, 12- to 15-inch plants. Baby Wing begonia starts blooming earlier than Dragon Wing. Its bright, glossy leaves also add to its appeal.

Although we have grown this begonia in full sun at the Hammond Research Station with good success, best plant structure will occur when grown with partial shade, especially in the afternoon.

This Louisiana Super Plant is an excellent bedding plant to add season-long color to the landscape. Grow it in containers and landscape beds.

Look for Baby Wing White and Baby Wing Pink at your local garden center or nursery.
