A closer look
Just prior to flowering, June 2002.
Just beginning to flower
Easy to grow, if kept cool - medium warm, overwinter , before the frost, dry in its container, at a cool dark place and wake it up in March, just add water and light and when 1 inch high give fertilizer.
Great small begonia, has returned each year in the ground and in hanging basket. Surprised it is as hardy as it is proving to be.
This is a macro shot of my Begonia sutherlandii as an addition to the comment I just submitted.
