Cold Hardy Begonia grandis

What a great choice for the hosta bed!



Evidently they can be grown from seed but ours were nursery purchases.

The leaves are red on the back so when the morning sun is behind them it's quite a scene.





At the leaf axis you can see a little white bulbil forming.



They can be removed and planted to increase your holdings.

These are an attractive addition to the garden and surprisingly hardy. Some people don't realize their gardens can bloom beautifully well into fall.
