Begonia ‘Maurice Amey’

(2 customer reviews)

$12.99

Begonia ‘Maurice Amey’ is a dazzling large shrub-like begonia. The large leaves are a bright metallic pink with faint silver spots. The main veins are dark olive green. The back of the leaf is dark red. When it is getting ideal light (lots of bright light and a little sun) the leaves have a silver rim on them. This is a fast grower and branches readily. The flower are bright pink and hang in small clusters. This outstanding variety was named after the late Maurice Amey, a hard working, bright and funny member of the Southwest Region and American Begonia Society. It is sometimes errorously labeled “Miss Mummy”. This bright vigorous begonia is a fitting memory to him.

Shade to partial sun, temp. 45 to 100 degrees, 2 to3 ft tall taller if staked, allow getting fairly dry between watering.

    Yaayye! Finally got my hands on Begonia ‘Maurice Amey’. Steve’s Leaves did a wonderful job as ALWAYS but USPS delayed its arrival by so many extra days that it had dried out… resulting in leaf damage. Thankfully its stems were not damaged & I will nurse it back to health. So grateful to have my wishlist plant!

    I’ve bought a lot of begonias from Steve’s lately so my reviews will be pretty much the same for each. Every single one has been bigger, fuller, and more beautiful than I could have hoped. I am always so thrilled opening the boxes to find more plants just as nice as the last shipment. Maurice Amey is a must have if you love pink! Wowza!
