What You’ll Need:
Essential Items Desirable Items

Water soluble plant food


Fibrous Begonia; low growing, low maintenance, plant with good heat tolerance. Frost tender. Blooms well until frost. Six to eight inches tall and spread to eight inches. Prefers shade to filtered sun.

Tuberous begonia; large, showy flowers. Available in both upright and
trailing varieties. Most often used in baskets or containers. Overwatering will
cause tuberous begonias to develop root rot. This is the most common
mistake gardeners make with begonias. The soil should be almost dry before
they are watered.

Impatiens; good for color in any shady area.
Frost tender. Eight to twelve inches tall and spreads to ten inches.

Double impatiens; Blossoms have high
pedal count. Looks similar to miniature
roses.

New Guinea impatiens; larger blooms in rich colors.
More tolerant of sun, but still does well in shade
