Trailing-Scandent Begonias

Begonia 'Potpourri'The trailing type of begonia are grown mostly for their trailing habit but put on a spectacular show of flowers, usually in the spring. 

Some of the newer varieties have a longer blooming period or are ever blooming. Some have glossy leaves and look like a philodendron, but others grow large leaves and will climb. In their native habitat these types will climb up the trunks of trees. Most of the trailing types have white or pink flowers.
