Begonia, a genus of tropical and subtropical plants, grow as perennials in warm climates and annuals elsewhere. Some species, such as Begonia grandis, or "hardy" begonia, grow in USDA zones 6 through 9. Begonias are best suited to USDA zones 9 (with protection) through 11, where minimum average temperatures range from 25 degrees F to 40 degrees F and above.
