The Whopper Begonia
Whopper begonias planted in shade can reach 24-30 inches tall with a 12-16-inch spread but will be shorter and more compact with more sun. Small plants can be placed 8-10 inches apart for quicker fill, but up to 12-14 inches apart with larger plants in 6-inch to gallon-size containers.
