I had to post a neutral comment, because I've had this plant for only four days. I was poking around on the begonia benches at Logee's and saw Reddington Shores from a distance .

The new growth is ruffly and red ( but not as hairy as it looks ) and grows out flattened and whorled. I'm new here and am going to try to attempt to post photos of it. The photos are of a plant that was propagated ten weeks ago according to the tag. It isn't listed in their catalog yet.
