Tuberous begonias were discovered in the forests of Bolivia and Peru. Next to bedding begonias "Semperflorens" tuberous begonias are probably the best-known, most widely grown and are enjoyed by the average gardener around the world. Growing and caring for begonias is easy, especially when growing from tubers. They produce stunning showy large flowers.

These are not plants for the deep south or desert southwest since they do not grow well in hot, arid environments without special care. Shade from hot sunlight, but allow some sun. Keep containers moist and avoid overwatering. Removing any wilted leaves or flowers will encourage the plants to produce more flowers.
