This new Terra Nova hybrid between Begonia pedatifida and the Chinese Begonia taliense makes a 1' tall x 2' wide clump of lobed silver leaves, highlighted by dark green narrow patterns that follow the bright red veins. The clumps are adorned with pink flowers in late summer, but grow this one for the great foliage! We have not found this to take our summer heat in containers, even though it prospers in the ground. As they say in Chicago gardening circles, plant early and often.
