"Palm Leaf Begonia"
Seeing a full grown specimen of this species makes most people do a double take. “Is that really a Begonia?” Yes, it really is! It’s also a freakishly cool, ostentatious foliage plant for shade that grows up to 8’ tall, with scented white flowersand huge palmate leaves. This plant is right at home in dappled light in rich soil with regular water. It’s not very hardy but can be over-wintered as a houseplant below USDA Zone 10. Rarely availableand only in very small quantities, nab one if you can! From Brazil.
