Begonia emiensis DJH98479
We call this ‘Beastie Begonia’…luscious, large, waxy leaves in slowly expanding clumps 18-20” tall and 2-3’ wide. Mature leaves develop big tubercles on top that eventually cause the leaf to bend down to the earth and start new plants! Like most Begonias, this beastie enjoys shade, soil that is rich, moist and well drained and adoration. Pink flowers late summer to fall. Mulch to protect shallow rhizomes in winter. Collected from Emei Shan Province in China by Dan Hinkley.
