Silver™ Treasure Begonia

Begonia 'Treasure'

Silvery-green leaves with burgundy undersides create a big impact with a large, dense, shrubby form. Pink flowers peek out from under the leaves in summer and fall. Evergreen in hardiness zone 8 and above. Can be used as a perennial in zone 7 with extra mulch for winter protection. An excellent annual elsewhere.
