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 double flowers accented with varied shades of bronze and green leaves.  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.
