These stellar perennial selections promote good-looking deciduous foliage and captivating clusters of colorful dangling blooms. Filtered shade, rich fast-draining soil that stays moist but not water logged, and a layer of mulch for winter protection ensure their well-being.
This fetching winter-hardy tuberous Begonia has lots to toot its horn about. The mounded, gleaming green clump presents attractive, large angel-wing leaves that sport red veins, branched stems with cardinal-hued nodes and exquisite panicles of yellow-centered white flowers. A perfect companion for fellow shade dwellers like Pulmonarias and Impatiens omeiana, ‘Alba’ appears late spring, requiring mulch in cold winter locales and slightly acidic, well-drained moisture-retentive soil.
Size: 18" – 2' 0" high x 12" – 18" wide.
