Babywings should be planted in a full sun to shaded location. Full sun locations during hot summer days may stress these plants, making them susceptible to disease. Therefore, in areas where summers are exceptionally hot, afternoon shade can be achieved.
Once appropriately placed in the flower bed or hanging basket, deadheading spent blooms and keep the soil moist.
Watering correctly is important in the care of Babywings. Soil should remain moist, but not too wet. A well-draining soil or potting mix simplifies this task. Pinching the buds or deadheading Babywings promotes a thicker appearance.
Known as Baby Wing hybrid Begonias, these plants grow quickly and easily fill in spaces in the garden.
