Begonia reniformis

(Syn.: Begonia vitifolia), Grape Leaf Begonia
Begonia reniformis

Code: 90677

Price: $12.95

Quantity in Basket: None

This is an impressive thick-stemmed tree-like Begonia from Brazil. It has huge glossy dark green leaves in the shape of grape leaves and the size of dinner plates. Its thick segmented soft woody stems arise from the base quickly growing up to 10 feet tall (25 feet in the tropics). Many stems arise from the base, creating a full plant. Its upright stems rarely branch and are somewhat brittle. So, it is wise to keep it in a protected position. The airy sprays of small white flowers appear from spring through summer. Give it partial shade, a warm location, and allow it to become somewhat dry between waterings. It can give a real tropical look to the greenhouse, conservatory, or outside in the tropics.
