‘Gene Daniels’

Not your grandma's Begonia but a big shrub (cane) Begonia reaching 6’ x 6’ in a couple of years. Choice for frost-free porches, patios and tropical settings, it’s crowded from top to bottom with huge, red-edged, heart-shaped leaves to 1’ long, glossy-ruby on the reverse for an intriguing two-tone effect. With some sun the leaves darken to a stunning almost blue-black color. Pretty extra-big clusters of pink flowers appear almost year-round. Does great in a large container (25+ gal). Rich, well-drained soil. Hardy to 25-30° F. Created by Begonia expert Rudy Ziesenhenne.
