Begonia glabra
Begonia glabra
Stock Number: 56050
Availability: In Stock
Family: Begoniaceae
Cultural Code: HP CGH what's this?

(trailing/scandent) "Mini Grapeleaf" glossy grass-green leaves on strong scandant vine terminating in clusters of shell pink flowers. Also offered as B. procumbens on West Coast. This brightly cheerful winner readily forms clinging hair roots along its stems and happily clings to and covers even a concrete wall with shingled waxy leaves accented in late winter with outarched blossom clusters; thus, very popular as a solid cover for mossed topiary forms. Alternately, an interesting small foliaged vine cascading from a hanging basket or windowbox.

Cultural Codes

Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.

If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.
