Tectonic™ Shangri-La™ Begonia

Begonia circumlobata 'MonShayne'

SKU
42323
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.
