Begonia Glowing Embers
Has anyone found the way to overwinter "Glowing Embers"? Any tips appreciated!
I think that’s an annual type. You could bring it indoors and maybe get a bit more out of it.

Nope .... I failed miserably. Wish I'd tried cuttings.

I overwinter mine.
They are tuberous, so I bring them inside about now, let them die back and then dig up the tubers.
I replant in February, but don't plant out till after the frosts.

It lives in my back porch and when it dies down I move it down from its space in full sun to a lower shelf and let it dry out. I look out for new shoots in the spring and then water it carefully. I repot and feed as necessary and it flowers every year. It's still in flower now
I’ve got the same one ‘ glowing embers’ what a beauty. I’ve taken some cuttings and put them in pots of half perlite and half potting compost and they seem to have taken. But, I didn’t realise that they could regrow again next year if left to dry out. I will bring the whole plant indoors and keep it dry and hopefully it will survive.
