Re: Re: dragonwing
Well, Jim, while searching for info to explain to you what a DW begonia is I
finally found one site that gave a min temp, though it doesn't seem correct.
As Daryl mentioned earlier, she's had them survive down to 27 F.
Dragonwing begonias are hybrids that have the erect habit of the anglewing
parent but the free flowering habit and bright red flowers of the wax
begonia parent. It usually grows to 18 inches tall from several erect,
cane-like stems. The leaves are similar in shape to the anglewing parent but
smaller and more glossy and succulent like the wax begonia parent. The plant
's creator is PanAmerican Seed Co.
I found one site:
Grow Temp. / Pinching Heat tolerant, Minimum 180C
but a converter tells me that is 64 degrees F, and surely they're more
durable than that. Is a minimum growing temperature in the trade the same
as the minimum that plant needs to survive?
