description for "Begonias: Begonia 'Dragon Wing Red'"

'Dragon Wing' begonias are spectacular. Bright green angel winged leaves contrast brilliantly with the scarlet flowers. Imagine your hanging baskets spilling over with vigorous branches and blooms of this exciting tropical beauty. It's a wonder the whole basket of begonias doesn't just take off. Begonias perform well in sun or shade but absolutely require moist, well-draining soils. -- edited by dtd pbcouchman

I agree...this is a spectacular plant! My Florida shade gardens are filled with tropical foliage, and some people consider the dragonwing begonia to be a foliage plant. But I grow this here so I can have flowers mixed in with the foliage of the ti plants, bromeliads, and ferns. They are just the right accent!
