Seeing a full grown specimen of this species makes most people do a double take. “Is that really a Begonia?” Yes. It really is. It’s also a freakishly cool, ostentatious foliage plant for shade that grows up to 8’ tall, with scented white flowers & huge palmate leaves. This plant is right at home in dappled light in rich soil with regular water. It’s not very hardy but can be over-wintered as a houseplant below USDA Zone 10. Rarely available & only in very small quantities, nab one if you can! From Brazil.
