We don't know how "new" this begonia is but it's new to Kartuz Greenhouses. We really like it. The leaves are a bright yellow/green with a faint brown stitching along the edge. Leaves have overlapping lazy spirals but you can barely tell anyway since the leaf folds and cups, and the plant grows so full, it's hard to tell where one leaf ends and other starts. Leaves are irregularly lobed, sometimes shallow and sometimes to a cleft. Very crisp and clean in appearance with a satin sheen that only adds to the golden affect. Lots of pink flower spikes in late winter. Everyone loves this begonia not only for it's looks, but also for it's ease of growth. Although it isn't listed in the International Database for Begonias, we are fairly sure that it's a Tim Anderson hybrid.
