What's Pink & Green in the Garden?

Begonias! Not only in the garden, but in containers as well. (And if you also have problems with Carolina Wrens nesting and scratching in your containers, try river stones or shells. Just a few will deter even the most persistent birds.)

Five things to love about begonias:

  1. Low maintenance

  2. Blooms all summer

  3. Spent blooms fall off - no need to deadhead

  4. Lots of variety in both leaf and bloom colors/textures

  5. Easily rooted in water
