Unbeatable performance

Come see what all the fuss is about. No other begonia has caused the stir that Dragon Wing® Red Begonia has, and once you grow this delightful, super-vigorous plant, you will join the chorus of praise. The best begonia for baskets, window boxes, and even bedding that we have ever grown, Dragon Wing® Red Begonia is a grower's secret weapon for consistent, easy sales all season long.

The bright scarlet blooms arise in big, loose clusters that peer downward from among huge, glossy, wing-shaped leaves. Perfect for a hanging basket, terrace, or other high point, the flowers show to full effect when seen from below. And the Dragon Wing® Red Begonia plant is bushy and full, seeming to burst its bounds when confined to a container, yet never sprawling or ungainly in the garden. Gleaming with vigor, Dragon Wing® Red Begonia blooms in summer in full sun (in the north) to partial shade (in the south), tolerating extreme heat beautifully.

Even your customers who usually ignore begonia will find themselves drawn to the bright blooms and elegant habit of Dragon Wing® Red Begonia. Maybe it's the sheer vigor—just 12 to 20 inches high and 15 to 18 inches wide, this plant gives the impression of tropical lushness and almost indestructible health. Very well-branched, Dragon Wing® Red Begonia fills itself out quickly, giving you more blooms and a better shape than any other begonia we've grown (and we think we may have grown them all).

Dragon Wing® Red Begonia Seeds takes about 14 to 16 weeks to go from seed to bloom. Grow it is high humidity.

This seed comes as a "pellet". "Pelleted" seeds are small seeds that have been clay-coated to make them larger and more uniform in size and shape, making them easier to handle when planting.
