Begonia 'Alice's White Rabbit'




Begonia Alice's White Rabbit

$12.95  

The name is a little playoff of unrelated Begonia 'Looking Glass', which is also silver. While at first glance young plants of the two may look alike, they do not stay that way. 'Alice's White Rabbit' is more upright, rambling, and branching and blooms in late summer, unlike 'Looking Glass' which seldom blooms. As a medium-leaved Superba cane, it makes a lovely large hanging basket or specimen. It also has one other great trait, unlike most silver leaved canes, it's not mildew prone. It was named a few years ago, but was in such demand that we never had enough to list. New introduction for 2017. (Thompson)
