This was my first year growing this begonia in a mixed shade container. I started it inside from a tuber with bottom heat in April. It was exceptionally floriferous this summer and did well in moderately dense shade planted in a whiskey barrel with other begonais. It draped nicely over the container side. By far, it had many more flowers than the 'Non-Stop' begonias in the same container.
