This is a big, lusty begonia with large, rounded leaves and flower umbels up to 10in across. The flowers have a lovely light fragrance in the mornings. Expect it to get large, quite quickly. This plant in the picture went from a 9in. cutting to 5ft. x 5ft. in less than 3 years, in a large hanging basket. It likes dappled shade, but will take some sun even in Florida.
