Very hardy and remains evergreen in the mid-twenties. 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
