Begonias don’t require as much sunlight as other annual garden flowers, which is why they may seem more sensitive than other annual flowers. Begonias are best planted in an area where they get morning and/or early afternoon sunlight with mid-to-late afternoon shade, or in a place where they will get speckled sunlight through tree canopies. Too much bright light will scorch the leaves. Begonias do need well-drained, yet moist soil to thrive. It’s important to plant your new begonias after the last spring frost because begonias don’t thrive well in temperatures under 60 degrees Fahrenheit.
