Hi guys,

I found this plant in my back yard. It was tiny but I liked the leaves so I planted in a pot with some other flowers. The other flowers are all gone but look at this. I love it.

Anybody know what it is?

Thanks,

Bill

They come in tuber form ( like a bulb) sold in spring. You can overwinter the tuber after the frosts have killed off the flowers and leaves. Put in a shed over winter and pot up again in Spring and put out when dangers of frost are over ie May

That's a lovely colour. I seems to have been a good year for Begonias. It's nice that something has done well this year.
