Begonia ‘Cool Breeze Pewter’

*** PLEASE NOTE ***

This plant is no longer for sale from TERRA NOVA® Nurseries. It is strictly on our website for information purposes only.

Broad oval leaves, casually fluted, pointed and ruffled, are held on a mounded, stout plant that has a quiet, dignified presence. Satiny, pewter colored leaves are accented by a deep green heart, held in a snowflake pattern at the center of the leaf. As the leaves ruffle and twist, they hint at the dramatic red back. Another cool growing Begonia for smart growers.

Grower Notes

These tolerate cool greenhouse conditions with a low of 40° F. Sanitation of media and growing conditions is critical. Greenhouse production recommended for best environmental controls. Avoid use of overhead irrigation. Do not crowd plants as this can lead to more disease problems and stretched plants. Do not plant too deep.
