Begonia Indian Summer Begonia 'Indian Summer'
Code: 90498
Price: $12.95

Quantity in Basket: none

Medium leaved rhizomatous. It's very hard to get a perfect image since the velvety sheen to the leaf is hard to capture.

The leaves can go through color changes during the year from reddish brown to orange/red with faint darker markings but always with a central glowing eye and glowing red central veins. In Autumn B.

It has the added bonus of profuse medium pink flowers in spring. Compact and easy to grow. A must have. (Thompson)
