Begonia Escargot
Begonia Escargot

Wow! How can you resist such wild foliage? Looking so snail-like with its hand-sized, high contrast, silver and deep green variegation, 'Escargot' is a tender, but strong-growing rhizomatic rex hybrid Begonia. Forms a dense clump, 12"x12". Warmth and humidity-loving, you can grow it outdoors best in a container, when and where you have those conditions. Otherwise, grow it as a wondrous houseplant, happily resting on a pebble/humidity tray with a twice-a-week watering and regular fertilizing. Cut back to soil level to rejuvenate.
