Begonia sp. YuGu 301


Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
A gorgeous begonia growing near small cardamom plantings along the trail in the forest heading to higher elevations. Fantastic foliage with dark and sultry clouding and with undersides a vivid red and held by similarly colored stems furred in pale hairs. The white flowers contrast perfectly.
This proved hardy in the beastly 2021-2022 winter with a bit of bark mulch in the Lehman-Russell garden in Seattle. Members of Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy we might add. When we saw new growth appearing there the following spring, we were briefly but enthusiastically afflicted with Steve Martin Happy Feet. A Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy Offering.
