There are about a thousand different Begonia species, and several thousand hybrid varieties, with new ones being added every year. By crossing two or more of a host of different species, more and more begonias have been produced since the 19th Century to get particular effects. Different colours, including bicolour, as well as single, double, trailing and hanging varieties, make it possible to find one (or one hundred) Hybrid Begonias which will fit your garden needs to perfection. All Begonias like filtered or diffused light, so keep them out of full sun. They are partial to regular watering but don’t leave them standing in water, whether they are planted in the garden or containers.
