Begonia 'China Doll'

A very vigorous hybrid, B.'Bow-Arriola' x B.bowerae. As a young plant the black leaves with crimped hairy margins were irresistable.

During the summer, it expanded massively and the leaves became more and more crimped and hairy. In autumn, the Larch that was shading it shed all of its leaves onto it, and six months later I have still not managed to remove them all, they are so tangled into the mass of leaves.

A new location needed for this summer, I think!
