Picture this...a hardy begonia to only 6" with a spread of 18" with orange flowers all summer and you have...yes, it's Begonia sutherlandii. From the Brookside Gardens, via the mountains of South Africa comes the most exciting plant in years for the woodland garden. While it is reportedly hardy thru zone 7, we can only vouch for 2 degree F with no problem.
