Tectonic™ Shangri-La™ Begonia
Begonia circumlobata 'MonShayne'
|Description||A fantastically hardy woodland perennial from the mountains of China. Upright, fuzzy, dark red stems support handsome, dark olive-green foliage with brick red undersides. Deeply lobed, palmate, toothy leaves with silvery white speckles add bold texture and contrast to any lightly shaded setting. An extraordinary specimen for containers, a large terrarium, or as a houseplant.|
|Light||Full shade, Partial shade|
|Watering||Water when soil is dry to the touch.|
|Blooms||Late spring to early fall.|
|Mature Size||Moderate growing; reaches 12 to 18 in. tall and wide.|
|Landscape Use||Border, Container|
|Design Ideas||This makes a really exotic specimen plant. Use for color and texture, tucked between ferns in a lightly shaded border or tree understory. It does very well in the sheltered humidity of a large terrarium or vivarium.|
|Companion Plants||Ligularia (Ligularia); Rhododendron (Rhododendron); Fern (Arachniodes); Anemone (Anemone); False Ginseng (Metapanax delavayi)|
|Care||Provide enriched, well-drained soil. Best with some humidity; avoid extreme heat and harsh sun exposures. Water regularly, allowing soil to dry just slightly between watering. Move container plants indoors when temperatures reach 45 degrees to overwinter as a houseplant. In landscape plantings, potentially hardy to zone 7b with winter protection.|
