Wax Begonia Plants

My mother used to grow Wax Begonias up north. They had to be cut back and taken indoors in the fall before the frost, and moved back out again in the spring. I was delighted to see that people grow them here in Florida, and bought two little plants at a spring sale this year. I would like to be growing more flowers and vegetables here, but with the extreme heat, hordes of mosquitoes, and those five dear little escape artists (pygmy goats) I don't find myself exerting too much effort.
