Begonia sp. (‘Boomer’)

Life: Perennial

Size: 18-36"

Light: Bright Shade

Water: Moist, Well-Drained

Soil: Some Sand to Clay Loam

A large-growing, thick-stemmed variety with fine red hairs. The bronzy-green leaves are large, round, and heavily textured. Like most thick-stemmed types, it does not branch much but will send up new growth from the base, dropping the older leaves to reveal the stems. It will produce sprays of small white flowers on the ends of these stems each spring. Great for containers, it can be grown indoors in bright indirect light or outdoors on a shady patio. Protect from freezing.
