This is a tall growing cane with medium sized superba type leaves that are bronze and streaked with silver. It blooms with long dangling clusters of fragrant bright pink flowers. The first thing that can be said about this begonia is that it's a survivor. Planted outdoors where other begonias would have perished, it has survived downpours, heat, drought and neglect and still continues to flourish. Wendy Corby, begonia enthusiast and newsletter editor of the Sacramento Begonia Society, liked the idea of a survivor named after her, so last year it was given the name Begonia 'Lady Corby' by its breeder Brad Thompson. It's easy to grow and is useful for various purposes, such as for making an impressive large basket plant. This cane has never been sold before. New introduction for 2017. (Thompson)
