This species came as Begonia circumlobata, a rhizomatous species widely distributed in China. Although this species displays significant variation in plant size and morphology of leaves and flowers, which can be white, whitish-pink, pink or nearly red, I have real doubts this is B. circumlobata. I think this could be the natural hybrid Begonia × dashuigouensis, its parents being B. hemsleyana and B. macrotoma. It really seems to have a strong affinity to B. hemsleyana. Whatever this turns out to be, we will keep the name it originally came with until it can be proven otherwise.
This plant has wavy edges to its leaves and strongly divided lobes, held on upright, purple-red stems covered in downy, white hairs. Flowering June to September. Height 80 to 100 cm. Part shade in a cool, sheltered position in moist, humus rich, well-drained soil. Not tested for hardiness (though it could potentially take a very light frost with a mulch), so we would suggest growing it as a potted specimen in the garden and bringing it in before the first frosts.
