(shrub) Small featured shrubby hybrid with pink-toned fabuously felted wing-shaped leaves, rouged a flirtin' red beneath; recurring pearl fading to pale pink flowers with red beards, the male flowers somewhat serrate edged; forms a tight cluster of short stems beautifully foliaged, given good light and organic fertilizer. The attractively haired foliage allows this to acclimate to less humid conditions than tolerated by most Beonias. A great one to start with as positive feedback is constant! Perfect potplant on any windowsill; and always a gift that survives.
|Cultural Code||HP TGH|
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.×
