This Year’s Success

20110906-074619.jpg

I have been totally happy with the performance of the fibrous root and dragon wing begonias this year. They just may be what works for me. What more could you ask for other than lush foliage and plenty of blooms that look good rain or shine? They did suffer an insect attack that was easily remedied with Safer spray from which they quickly recovered. A few of the brittle branches were broken by the Carolina wrens trying to get in them. It was hardly noticeable and they quickly recovered from that as well. Exposed to periods of hot burning sun as well as shade, they gracefully endured having been watered daily. I intend to use them exclusively on the deck next year.
