Maple shaped leaves have red splashing over a yellow-green background on this big Begonia. A wonderful summer annual or house plant. Tall white flower spikes add a great bonus in winter. The Royal Horticultural Society was so impressed in this plant's strength and stature, that they gave it an Award of Garden Merit (AGM)! Easy and fast.
