Solenia is a Hiemal Begonia, a cross between a tuberous begonia and a wax begonia.  The first of these crosses where called Reiger or Elatior type of begonias.  The new Hiemals are hybridized to be tough enough to be called a ‘Bedding Begonia’. That means you can plant them right in your window boxes, planters, baskets and even in the ground.  Grow Solenia in the shade to part sun in the south where it can receive some afternoon shade.  In the north Solenia can be grown in a part sun to sun location.  Solenia will also grow inside like a regular Rieger begonia, in a bright open window area. Enjoy continuous double blooms with these semi-trailing, low maintenance plants. Solenia likes the sun and humidity (but not extreme heat) and its' excellent branching habit keeps them from getting top heavy and breaking. Allow the soil in these mildew and wind resistant plants to dry a bit between watering.
