Begonia formosana f. albomaculata - BSWJ6881

Pot Size: 1.5 litre
Price: £10.00
A collection we originally gathered from the Hoping logging trail on the north-east coast of Taiwan in 1999 at 800 m. Not expecting much in the way of hardiness, we only planted a portion of it in our woodland garden a couple of years later, where it has remained and grown moderately ever since, even enduring the winter of 2010/11 at -15C. From a surface rooting rhizome, having obliquely ovate palmately irregularly serrated leaves, 15-20 cm long, 8-18 cm wide, that are a bronzy green spotted white in this form. Bearing axillary cymes of pale pink flowers. Best in moisture retentive well drained soil in a shaded container or sheltered woodland setting. Height to 50 cm, flowering July-frost.
