This type of begonia will delight you with gorgeous large flowers (like a rose), painted in white, red, or yellow. It is best to grow large-flowered begonias in partial shade or in the sun, but without direct sunlight.

It is important to know that begonias do not tolerate large temperature fluctuations, as well as very high temperatures. To enjoy this wonderful large-flowering species for a long time, it is necessary to provide a place that is protected from drafts. Always water with filtered water if possible and be careful not to wet the leaves and flowers (wetting the leaves and flowers increases the risk of developing fungal diseases).
