Begonia Kentwood [hyb] Begonia

Begonia Kentwood [hyb]
Stock Number: 56899
Availability: In Stock
Family: Begoniaceae
Cultural Code: TGH what's this?

(thick trunked) Impressive tall stalks support not only silvery frosted deely lobed angelwing leaves, richly rouged beneath, but also pendant large clusters of fragrant pearly pink blossoms fading to white--but considerable patience is demanded to grow this to the maturity needed to bloom. Needs good humidity and adeqate light to perform--more sensitive to chill than most Begonias. The upright stalks seldom branch.  May be a propagate-to-order item if demand outstrips availability.

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.
