Begonia ‘Silver Skies’ is a new rizomatous hybrid released by Steve’s Leaves in May 2015. It is a cross of B. U489 and B. sizemoreae. The large leaves are silver with a large olive green pattern in the center of the leaf and a olive green margin around the leaf. It has pink flowers that form throughout the year. the growth habit is open and loose but makes a full plant in strong light.
