Are begonias sun or shade plants?
Simply so, where should I plant begonias?
Where to Plant
- Outdoors: Begonias prefer shade, rich soil and require some regular care, so try to plant them in an area that is easily accessible.
- Indoors: If you're starting tubers inside, place planted Begonias in a warm location with indirect sunlight, preferably an eastern, western, or southern-facing window.
Also, can I plant begonias in full sun? Begonias may have single or double flowers. Though typically recommended as shade plants, several begonia varieties (Begonia spp.) grow well in full sun. As tropical plants, they have the added advantage of thriving in hot weather.
Additionally, where should I plant begonias sun or shade?
Tuberous begonias do best in filtered shade or shaded areas that receive bright indirect light. Balance is important. Too little sun brings few blooms, but too much sun burns tender flowers and foliage. These tender tubers are hardy in USDA zones 9 through 11, and prefer cool summers over heat and humidity.
Can begonias tolerate morning sun?
First of all it is important to note that overall, begonias perform best in light shade or part sun, that is 4-6 hours of morning sun and will do well in deeper shade, especially the tuberous Non-Stops and the flashy foliage types such as Rex begonias.
