Begonia large sp. from Mexico - BSWJ10279

Sorry this plant is not available at the moment. Please try again later or select an alternative plant.
Incredulous was our first thought when we first encountered this species in the wilds of Chiapas in the south of Mexico in 2004. Where it grew on a steep shaded bank along with Gunnera, forming spreading colonies of enormous rounded leaves to 1m across, on equally tall hairy stems. With large panicles of pale pink flowers ageing to pink large winged seed capsules, from the branching stems which formed aerial rhizomes, which drop to the ground and root. Best in a container or testing in a sheltered shady area in a drained fertile moisture retentive soil.
