Begonia ‘Alice Faye’

(1 customer review)

$14.99

Begonia ‘Alice Faye’ is an outstanding hybrid created by Lyla Kilpatrick of Perth, Australia. The parents are B. ‘Lenore Olivier’ and the Mexican rhizomatous species B. hydrocotylifolia. It is also interesting because the inflorescence stands upright, although sometimes it gets so heavy it falls over. This gives a unique look to this cane-like hybrid. It has been described as a hydrangea begonia because of the way it holds its flowers. The flowers are bright pink in large clusters. The large leaves are oval shaped and shinny black. This is really an unusal begonia.

(Lyla Kilpatrick, Western Australia, 1995)

Shade to partial sun, temp. 50 to 95 degrees, 15 to 20 inches tall,allow getting slightly dry between waterings.

    This is a spectacular begonia! It arrived in perfect condition (as always!) and has been growing very well. It’s beginning to bloom now, and I’m very excited, but even without flowers it’s a stunning plant. The leaves have a satiny, almost iridescent cast and their size is impressive. One of my favorite begonias
