Begonia 'Veintastic' is a 2022 Plant Delights/JLBG introduction of an Arley Dugger selection of the Chinese winter hardy begonia. Begonia pedatifida has been one of the most stellar begonias in our garden since 2005. This special form has red stems, whose color also runs into the leaf veins. The 18" tall x 3' wide clumps are composed of 1' long, fuzzy maple-like, deeply-lobed foliage. The stalks of large pink flowers from summer through fall are obscured by the foliage. Begonia 'Veintastic' forms a splendid bold-textured feature and is happiest in well-drained light shade gardens.
