Begonia ‘Garden Angel Silver’

*** PLEASE NOTE ***

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

Shiny silver, maple-like leaves with mint green veins make this tough Begonia distinctly different from others. In the shade, little glints of frosty white at the leaf edges catch the eye. Sweet pink flowers complement the plant, making this a great border blender or stand-alone. In a container, it can be a star or a supporting player.
