A really nice Begonia form with dark red leaf undersides and masses of white flowers in late summer.
If given the right conditions this Begonia grandis subsp. Evansiana var. alba will naturalise and pop up year after year. It’s a favourite hardy Begonia of mine and I love dotting it around in shady areas to find where it is happiest. I’ve found that it prefers cool partially shady conditions and good drainage.
Key plant features: Red undersides and white flowers.
Origin: East Asia
Common names: Hardy Begonia, Beefsteak Begonia
Position: Shade/Partial Shade
Hardiness: Hardy in warmer areas of temperate climates.
