Can You Winter Over Bonfire Begonia?

Bonfire begonias (Begonia boliviensis 'Bonfire') can be saved over the winter. In mild winter areas, leave the begonia tubers in the ground. In areas that experience freezing temperatures, remove the tubers from the ground and plant them in loose soil in a container. Store the container in a cool, dark place that is protected from freezing temperatures.
