B. 'Fireworks' and Summer Heat
It is supposed to hit 92 degrees, I can't believe it. It's been predicted all week but never went above 82 which seemed like 100 degrees! My Rexes became very resentful, I've moved them all to the cool part of the basement which reminds me that I question the I.D. of the begonia I bought on line as B. 'Fireworks', it's a lovely plant but looks nothing like photos I've since seen as B. 'Fireworks', note the long apex and drip points, I like it so much I don't really care what the name is. My tips to beat the heat outdoors are: have plenty of shade cloth in shady corners and to save dragging the hose around I use a small weed sprayer filled with water, it does a good job of spraying and cooling and doesn't hit the leaves too hard. Stay cool everyone!
