Snapped: Shade-loving Rex begonias that will steal the show

by Comments (0)

The spectacular foliage on these Rex begonias caught the eye of many a garden writer at the recent President’s Choice Lawn & Garden preview. (For our American readers, President’s Choice plants are sold in Loblaw stores across Canada.) I love the idea that foliage can take centre stage in a garden – it doesn’t always have to be about the flowers. 

The bar has been set rather high with these gorgeous begonias. The ones shown here are called Shadow King Cherry Mint. I also brought home a Shadow King Cool White to plant. The leaves look like they’re covered in frost!
