Begonia boliviensis

I am in zone 7/6b but near the city and my back yard is sheltered with a patio to provide some winter heat. I am thinking of adding an outdoors container with Begonia boliviensis. Anyone have experience with these? Overwintering and in the growing season? How do they do in both instanced in the mid-Atlantic?


PS I cross posted this on the begonia forum, but reckoned you all might also have experience.

Mine survived 2 winters ago with mulch and did well. However, it rotted last winter. That's what I get for not propagating it.
