Begonia hiemalis

Begonia Hiemalis or Begonia Rieger

4.5" Garden Exclusives, Begonia Hiemalis, Dark Pink (Netja Dark)

Hiemalis Begonia is a cross between a tuberous and a wax begonia. It provides great color with little maintenance. 

This Begonia prefers filtered sunlight to full shade and does not like to get too wet. Fertilizing monthly will keep it blooming until frost. Pinch back longer branching stems to keep the plant compact and remove spent blooms to encourage constant regrowth.

Meadowridge loves this for it's low maintenance but full color in the shade.  With so many color options the Hiemalis Begonia is a favorite in several Shade Combinations.
