Begonia "Par Silver Frost"

When I bought this at Par Moor Garden Centre it had glistening blistered silver leaves, however a summer in the open has left it with greenish glistening leaves that are less attractive.

In the greenhouse during winter the leaves were very prone to mildew, and the plant looked very sorry for itself for several months. The spring regrowth was vigorous and healthy, but this is clearly not the best plant for cold conditions.
