Begonia sp. 'Pewterware'
Item #: 8534
Zones: 8b to 10b, at least
Height: 18" tall
(aka: Begonia U-358) This wonderful begonia is a D. Miller collection from Malaysia, which makes it all the more surprising that it has overwintered here into the upper teens F. For us, Begonia 'Pewterware' makes an 18" tall x 18" wide rhizomatous clump of silver foliage with a wide red back. The light pink flowers are nice, but nothing compared to the great foliage. In colder climates, Begonia 'Pewterware' makes a superb houseplant or mixed container specimen.
