Description

Unbeatable performance

Come see what all the fuss is about. No other begonia has caused the stir that Dragon Wing® Pink Begonia has, and once you grow this delightful, super-vigorous plant, you will join the chorus of praise. The best begonia for baskets, window boxes, and even bedding that we have ever grown, Dragon Wing® Pink Begonia is a gardening marvel you will love.

The bright pink blooms arise in big, loose clusters that peer downward from among huge, glossy, wing-shaped leaves. Perfect for a hanging basket, terrace, or other high point, the flowers show to full effect when seen from below. And the Dragon Wing® Pink Begonia is bushy and full, seeming to burst its bounds when confined to a container, yet never sprawling or ungainly in the garden. Gleaming with vigor, Dragon Wing® Pink Begonia blooms in summer in full sun (in the north) to partial shade (in the south), tolerating extreme heat beautifully. The flower color changes a bit depending on the light—in bright sunlight it is pink with a rose reverse, but in shade it glows a lighter pink.

Even gardeners who dislike begonias have found themselves sneaking off to sow a flat of Dragon Wing® Pink Begonia. Maybe it's the sheer vigor—just 12 to 15 inches high and 15 to 18 inches wide, this plant gives the impression of tropical lushness and almost indestructible health. Very well-branched, Dragon Wing® Pink Begonia fills itself out quickly, giving you more blooms and a better shape than any other begonia we've grown (and we think we may have grown them all).

Dragon Wing® Pink Begonia takes about 14 to 16 weeks to go from seed to bloom, so start it indoors in mid- to late winter in a humid setting (the bathroom windowsill is ideal if it's broad enough and reasonably draft-free). In the garden, Dragon Wing® Pink Begonia is content in any good soil with reasonable drainage and consistent moisture.

From the glossy, over-the-top foliage to the plentiful pink blooms, Dragon Wing® Pink Begonia is a delight.

Poor Germination

This shopper rated the product 1 out of 5 stars

I had very low germination from these seeds (10%). Expect more from a pelleted seed.

So beautiful!

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

so rewarding to watch these babies grow! They loved the mostly shaded back deck in high elevation Colorado, overwintering very well inside in a cool, southern exposure window. Have been in Arizona for 1 month and they are under a covered north facing patio. The colors are becoming more vibrant again! So unique and enjoyable. Mine are staked in pot to protect from breaking in wind.

Beautiful

These germinated well under my grow light and on a heat mat. They produced prolific blooms until frost and grew quite tall. I kept them in a large pot and they were very happy.

Gorgeous flowers and foliage alike!

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

This is the first time I tried growing these and started them late/early summer. They germinated quickly and I transplanted them to two hanging planters off my back patio (heavy shade, 3 hrs. sun only per day). They are so pretty, the pink is lovely, not too pale. The foliage is also really beautiful, unblemished and shiny. I can't wait to grow these again in hanging side planters. Also, another great aspect, they are self cleaning, no need to groom, etc. Mine not bothered by anything. Seeds ordered already for 2014. Try them, so great!

dragon wing begonia

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

Not purchased before, but I bought one on impulse. My front bed is in deep shade where few flowers will bloom. Planted in the deepest shade, it produced an incredible amount of blooms and was tall enough to use in the rear of the bed, Unlike most bedding and tuberous begonias. One of my all time favorites in 60 years of cultivation.
