T Rex™ First Blush Rex Begonia

Begonia 'First Blush' PP #25,974

An eye-catching selection with fantastic foliage. The center of large, silvery leaves blush with pink, which spreads and deepens as the season progresses. Great in shade containers or as a house plant, but also does well in amended garden soil. A showy addition to a shady border. Grows as a perennial in mild winter regions; treat as an annual elsewhere.
