'Orange Rubra' is always in bloom in my central Florida yard. I've never had to protect it from the cold. It lives under 60% shade cloth. I love it's bright flowers.

Growing begonias in the landscape really adds a lot, year round interest, beautiful foliage and flowers spring-winter. I was surprised to learn that most begonias were hardy where I live in zone 8B. Planted around trees they get the perfect drainage, sunlight and low water requirements
