A green leaved collection of the Hollyhock Begonia (flowers form in the leaf axils of the upright stems). It remains to be seen quite how tolerant it is of low temperatures.

It produces tiny bulbils from the upper leaf nodes, and I am hoping that even if the main plant struggles through the winter, the bulbils can be saved and started into growth next year.

This one has survived the winter in a cold greenhouse, though plants brought into the conservatory were faster into growth.
