    The tuberous-rooted section comes from the cooler parts of South America and is very distinct from the shrubby sorts. They are entirely deciduous. They make fine bedding plants as well as splendid pot plants for the greenhouse from June to October. As a window plant they are not to be commended, soon dropping their showy petals.

    Grow Begonias from Tubers: A combination of beautiful double-flowers and textured foliage make the tuberous-rooted begonias attractive plants to grow. There are also some very charming single-flowered varieties. The plants which are half-hardy, make colourful summer bedding and excellent pot plants in the greenhouse or on the patio. Flower “bulbs” come in these forms: true bulbs, corm, tuber, tuberous root, and rhizome. So, what you might think of as a flower bulb may not be a bulb at all — botanically speaking, that is. True bulbs, such as daffodils, tulips, hyacinths, and snowdrops, often have a papery skin or tunic on the outside, much like an onion.

    Some types of tuberous begonias include: Panorama, Illumination, Pin Ups, Ornament, On Top, Non-Stop, and Charisma series. Their winter dormant period is determined by day length and weather in cold climates and day length in warmer climates. They need to follow their natural cycle, and the above information will help you let them to do that.   Begonias are tropical plants known for their waxy flowers and varicolored leaves. Begonias grow well in partially shaded, humid areas with moderate temperatures. Begonia categories include tuberous-rooted, rhizomatous and fibrous-rooted varieties. Although most begonias are grown indoors, these plants also work well.
