This shade loving annual is ideal for those places where most other things will not grow. This has become a great alternative for the problem plagued impatiens. Raised beds work well for Dragon Wings due to their need for well drained soil.


Be sure to put down 2 inches of mulch like pine bark mini nuggets or pine mulch around them to hold in moisture and prevent you from having to water them every day during the hot months. Dragon Wing Begonias like the humidity better than other begonias and don't mind being watered from above. Water in early morning around 5 or 6 and allow Dragon Wings to dry out between waterings.


They are also a great choice for those pots by the front door that are sitting in the shade. Plants in pots will need a good potting soil like Miracle Gro Moisture control Potting Mix to drain properly. Caladiums and Coleus are also shade loving and look great with Dragon Wings.
