|Begonia 'Glowing Embers' - another year, another place!|
I have previously mentioned the foliage Begonia 'Gryphon' which has done well in a shady corner but clearly viewable from inside my patio doors. Needing another houseplant some weeks ago, I bought a foliage begonia from the Dibley's range in our local garden centre. It has hairy lime green leaves freckled with chocolate spots. This has absolutely thrived in my north facing porch and covered the cabinet it sits on. Checking Dibley's website, I think its probably 'Marmaduke'.
Planting next year's garden seems an eternity away and by then I shall have forgotten all about this year's successes and resolutions. Better make a note for myself to plant more begonias next year!
