Beautiful! I remember "discovering" that begonia on a Fling, maybe DC? Maybe Toronto? Anyway I really wanted to add it to my garden but kept hearing that it comes up super I knew that meant I'd hate leaving the space empty and want to plant something else right on top of it.

It provides just the right kind of warmth in that spot, Linda. I'm sorry to hear about the rabbits - the coyotes here cull ours relatively quickly.

One of my favorite plants. It is always a nice surprise to see them finally pop up in the spring. Then on it is such an interesting plant to see growing in my zone as it is a begonia for goodness sakes. :) I hear ya about the rabbits. They are horrendous.

On a cool grey day here (is it really August? Where am I?), that color really warms. Is it just the leaf underside, or the top surface too?


Rabbits seem to be a “thing” this year. Even here in NW Washington there seem to be more than I can remember in a long time. They don’t always thrive in our wet, cold winters, so it will be interesting to see how many appear next spring.

Christine — Everyone seems to have a rabbit problem this year. A U.K blogger was complaining about the size and number of slugs and snails they are dealing with. Always something.
