Begonia ‘Palomar Prince’ (Begonia rhizomatous hybrid)
LIke a starburst on a clear winter night's sky, this rhizomatous begonia strikes a royal presence. The dark green, deeply cut double-spiraled leaves are dashed with flecks of lighter green and accented by golden veins. Tall sprays of pink flowers appear in winter adding to its grandeur. Like most begonias, this is easily grown in moderate light and adaptable to the home environment. When mature, it can reach over a foot in height. This beauty was created by Mike Kartuz of Vista, CA.
