Begonia Irene Nuss ~ Angel Wings Begonia

Begonia Irene Nuss can be a large free flowering shrub in the landscape. Canes will reach 4-5 feet. Begonia Irene Nuss is hardy to the mid 20°s F. By hiding Begonia Irene Nuss against a window of the house it has survived temperatures briefly drifting into the mid teens. Begonia canes only, all of the leaves dried out and just hung there. A month later and Begonia Irene Nuss was back on her game blooming like a mad thing. The dark green leaves have a dark red backside. The Angel Wings Begonia has pendulous clusters of pink flowers that last on the bush for weeks. I use Begonia Irene Nuss frequently near the coast and in protected locations in the inland valleys. Due to the preference for very good drainage I usually plant Begonia Irene Nuss in large containers rather than in the ground. For such a tropical looking plant Begonia Irene Nuss is surprisingly thrifty when it comes to water. Water Begonia Irene Nuss at the base, water on the leaves can cause mildew.
