Begonia panchtharensis

10th October 2013

Introduced from the Lachung Valley in north east Sikkim by Crug Farm Plants as B. sikkimensis (BSWJ 2692) but now identified as the recently named B. panchtharensis. The rhizome has been hardy here but the leaves are very fragile, often melting long before frost is threatened.
