Begonia ‘Cool Breeze Pewter’


This plant is no longer for sale directly from TERRA NOVA® Nurseries. However, it may still be available through one of our licensees. Please contact our sales department for more information at 800-215-9450.

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.
