    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?

    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.
