Begonia ‘Pink Diamond’

(2 customer reviews)

$14.99

Begonia ‘Pink Diamond’ is a very nice rex cultivar hybridized by John Howell of San Antonio, Texas. John was an enthusiastic hobbist who was breeding rex begonias for heat tolerance. It seems he was successful with this variety. The leaves are medium large, silver with a pinkish glow. It has a compact, full growth habit. When grown in the heat make sure it is watered well. Providing it with extra humidity will help it thrive, such as growing it near a garden pond or fountain.

(Howell, TX. 1990s?)

Shade to partial shade, 55 to 100 degrees, allow getting slightly dry between watering.

Family: Begoniaceae

    Even after several days of shipping transit, Pink Diamond arrived in vigorous good health and has fairly leaped into growing. I have had a problem with growing begonias in the past, but this one is super healthy and thriving! The included heat pack
    kept it from being negatively impacted by the cold. Steves Leaves never disappoints! Five stars for the plant AND the supplier!

    Plant arrived in excellent condition and has fairly leaped into growing and thriving. I was surprised at its size and
    vigor, even after several days in transit. Included was a heat pack that helped keep it from freezing in the bitter temperatures
    we have had. Steves Leaves never disappoints! Five stars for this glorious begonia AND the supplier!
