Speaking of begonias, please, I bought this bulb in the spring . See the results. Now will I be able to winter it over indoors in zone 5 winters?
Anyone know Thanks.

Beautiful begonia...I am zone 7 but here is a link on wintering begonias. There is actually a photo of your variety in the article.

I don't think a Begonia would stand a chance in my zone 5 location if left outdoors. I always bring them in and keep them in a sunny location to ride out the winter.
