Begonia 'La Cresta'

Begonia 'La Cresta' is sometimes called Begonia 'Suzies Curl' or 'Suzy's Curl'. But as far as I can tell the accepted name is 'La Creata'. This gorgeous large leaf rhizomatous begonia has a crested leaf margin. These crested begonias are sometimes called "Lettuce Leaf Begonias". The large leaf is a light bronze green with light green veins and mottling in the blade. It makes a magnificent specimen when mature. Like mosts rhizomatous begonias allow them to get dry between waterings.

Shade to partial shade, temp. 45 to 95 degrees, 15 to 18 in. tall, allow getting fairly dry between waterings.
