Interesting Notes about Wax Begonia:

The Wax Begonia is grown mainly as an annual bedding plant or in containers.  This series has pink, red or white flowers accented with the dark bronze leaves and are all named after some form of cocktail; the 3 colors represented in this mix are called Whiskey, Brandy and Vodka.  They prefer partial sun, and as long as there is adequate water will grow in full sun.  In full shade they may produce fewer flowers, but are still a power house of color.
