@jeatacake, begonia semperflorens, I grow them every year . They make a lovely display, very reliable and stand up to the bad weather very well. 👍

Thanks @peter-w I usually grow a couple but as you say, they are so reliable, flowering away until the frost strikes. Hard to beat them😊

That's good news as I have planted a few this year. I was worried about them not standing up to the north east weather.

They do well here, but of course, any frost will finish them off as might a very cold north easterly wind! 😕
