Begonia boliviensis

Begonia boliviensis Begonia boliviensis

A highly sought after & outstanding species Begonia of unparalleled beauty! Begonia boliviensis forms 2' clumps in the garden with numerous blooming stems, heavy with flame-like crimson orange flowers all through the Summer. A very hardy plant, this Begonia goes deciduous in Winter & returns from tuberous roots in late Spring around May or June (be patient!) A superlative choice for hanging baskets & shady pots. Indeed, the plants are easier to grow & keep track of in pots because of their long dormancy. The leaves are of an angel-wing type. This species hails from Argentina, where it can be found hanging from shady cliffs. If planted in the ground, good drainage is essential.
