Dragon Wing Pink Begonia

4 reviews

The name comes from the shape of the leaf, which is pointed at the end and wing-shaped. A single plant will completely overflow a container and this variety is very heat tolerant. Height will reach 15 inches but the plant will spread substantially more than that. Covered with an abundance of pink blooms with a rose reverse. A spectacular display all summer, then easily overwintered.      

5 pelleted seeds

    My first begonias

    I received my first order (one packet) and, as I do with most other seeds, I put them in a small amount of water to soak. Since these were such small seeds, I literally used a couple of drops of water in a tiny glass dish. The seeds immediately turned to dust. I figured I'd still give it a try so poured the drops onto my soil block. Because I was so excited to try these (and because I didn't read the number of seeds the first time, oops!) I ordered two more packages. Each package was planted on a row of 5 seed blocks, placed on a warming mat under grow lights at 15 hours per day. In each row, three of the 5 seeds germinated. I don't know if that's good or bad, just that it may help with planning your own plantings if you want a specific number of plants. Germination was 12-15 days with the light and heat mat. After another two weeks, the first sprouts have their first tiny true leaves. I'm very excited to see how these grow!
