Begonia "U606"

Begonia
Begonia 'U606'

Another of the many intriguing but still unidentified species that are in cultivation. This one is rhizomatous and from the Philippines. It bears attractive "smoky purplish-grey-green, decidedly felt-y foliage with contrasting veins.

This species performs well as a terrarium plant or in a humid greenhouse. Although I've not tried it, this species may even tolerate non-greenhouse "open-air" conditions if not overly dry (humid summer months).

These are husky cutting-grown plants, currently in 2-3" pots.
