Dragon Wing delivers excellent garden performance across a wide range of conditions. With a unique and beautiful arching, pendulous habit, this spectacular plant adapts well to hanging baskets, large containers and in-ground plantings. Dragon Wing is used widely by professional landscapers where season-long performance is necessary. Outstanding heat tolerance in areas like Florida provides lush, vigorous growth. Unusually strong performance in cool, stressful conditions in areas like northern Europe and Canada makes this series an ideal commercial landscape item. Dragon Wing offers a dramatically different look from standard begonias. Easy to grow from pelleted seed, it surpasses vegetative varieties for branching, vigour and “flower power.” Crop time from seeding to sale is 16 weeks for a 10-in./25-cm basket. Both colours are Georgia Gold Medal Winners.
