Begonia ‘Vivaldi’ is a rhizomatous begonia hybridized by Mike Kartuz. The oval leaves are small and mottled with shades of russet, yellow and light green. It has a compact growth habit. The colors in the leaves are very striking. It was named after the Italian Baroque Composer, Antonio Vivaldi. This is reallly an exciting new hybrid.
Shade to partial shade, temp. 45 to 95 degrees, 6 to 8 ins. tall, allow getting fairly dry between watering.
