Begonia 'Gryphon' is a fast growing hybrid Begonia that can attain heights of 36". It has tropical appearing, large deeply lobed leaves with silver veining. This is an easy to grow, drought tolerant plant that requires bright shade.

It's the only Begonia I couldn't kill in my less than perfect (for Begonias) conditions. I'm impressed how strong and tough she is, not to mention vigorous and showy. Easily can make a large specimen plant if given enough space.
