Begonia cathayana SOLD OUT
Our original plant was sold under the name of B. cathayana but it is more likely a form of the highly variable species B. palmata. Green, palmate foliage with slight, central colouring of purple to the younger leaves and white flowers in autumn. Height 50 cm. Full to part shade in a sheltered position in a moist, humus rich, well draining soil. May well prove hardy to -8C or above with a winter mulch - we have never tested how hardy it is, so would recommend pot growing it and keeping it totally frost free until it has been further tested.
