Begonia grandis subsp. evansiana


Hardy Begonia

USDA Zone: 6-9

Plant number: 1.098.050


A much sought-after rarity, this unusual and unlikely perennial has attractive, tuberous begonia-shaped leaves topped with sprays of light pink single flowers in summer. A wonderful curiosity for the rock garden. At its best in part sun, when planted in light, well-drained soil. Can be grown in containers in cold-winter areas. Use a winter mulch in colder regions. Odd little beak-shaped bulbils at the base of the leaves will fall off and form new plants, sometimes even when the mother plant dies over winter. Plants are late to come up in spring, so be patient.
