Begonia Paul Hernandez 4” potted
Begonia 'Paul Hernandez' is one of the largest of the shrub begonias, growing moderately fast to 4-6 ft tall (reported even to 8 feet in optimum conditions) with large 2 ft wide palmately-lobed leaves that are a shiny dark olive green with an attractive pustulated texture and red veins on the upper surface and a bright brick red color below. The petioles and lower leaf surface are sparsely covered with coarse reddish hairs. A free bloomer for us, it produces large clusters of upright small white flowers with prominent yellow stamens in late winter and spring in San Francisco.
An absolutely fantastic statement plant in any collection!
Shade to partial sun, 60 to 90 degrees, 15+ inches tall (long); allow to slightly dry between waterings.
