Begonia burkillii "Platinum"

Begonia burkillii
Begonia burkillii 'Platinum'

This Indian species is rightfully popular among growers.  It bears lustrous foliage with an attractive silvery variegation and veination over olive green.   Last season I grew out a batch of seedlings of "Silver-Edge" X "variegated".  Of them I selected two of the most strongly patterned forms to keep.  This one, to which i'm referring as "Platinum", very closely mimics the clean/bold leaf margin pattern of its 'Silver-Edge' parent, and it too is a female. Not sure if its worth releasing another similar form into circulation, but it truly is nice and i'd prefer it not to just get absorbed into cultivation as "Silver-Edge" as while it is related, its not genetically the same.   

Long story short, I have a few to spare, so here they are. 

Established plants in 2 1/2" pots.
