Originally from the Himalayas, China and Japan, Begonia grandis subsp. evansiana is sufficiently hardy to enjoy a space in our gardens. This hardy begonia, also known as the Beefsteak plant, has magnificent light green leaves, with blood red veins on their undersides.
Its joyful, soft pink flowers brighten shady spots throughout the summer until the first cool days of autumn.
Height: 60 cm. Planting distance: 40 cm.
Grow in a shady position in ordinary soil. This Begonia enjoys organic mulch after its axillary bulbils have dropped and protective mulch in regions with harsh winters.
Hardiness: - 10°C.
We recommend planting it with Tricyrtis, Hosta, Brunnera, Cimicifuga, Heuchera or Carex.
