Amongst the lavender plants also a must have in the garden is the begonia plant, these plants come in two main varieties, fibrous rooted or tuberous rooted. The tuberous begonias produce summer-long flowers and thrive in partially shaded garden beds, and the Fibrous rooted begonias are grown for either their foliage of flowers; both plants are tender perennials that thrive with the proper care. Begonias are warm-weather plants that are killed by freezing temperatures, outdoor plants must be brought inside in areas that experience winter freezing. Tuberous begonias are the type usually planted outside; having said that in warm climates fibrous rooted types can also be planted in the garden bed.
These beautiful plants as tender perennials won't survive the winter outdoors in most areas, inexpensive bedding plants for many common varieties are available in spring, and it would seem easier to grow these geraniums as annuals discarding the plants at the end of the season. The options available if you want to grow geraniums, is take indoors for winter or dig up and plant them in pots big enough to hold the roots, or lastly take 3 to 4 inch cuttings from stem tips to pot up indoors. Yes, i thought every garden should include some lavender plants.
