Bronze-leaved Wax Begonias "Vodka"

Every year I grow these bronze-leaved wax begonias "Vodka" because they thrive in the heat and humidity and scorching sun of Mississippi. They can take anything thrown at them except a heavy foot stepping on them. This is just 4 of the 36 I have potted up from the only flats I have found locally. Each year they are getting harder to find locally so perhaps I am the only customer around here who still likes to grow them. After Good Friday, off they will go from my covered patio to the flower bed.
