Mountain Orchids

Begonia foliosa var miniata (fuchsioides)

This native to Venezuela & Columbia is a shrublike, somewhat succulent grower potentially getting up to 36" tall.  However, it can easily be trained (pruned) to stay smaller.  Its growth starts rigidly upright but the tips and side branches will arch as they mature - offering the perfect host for the plentiful hanging panicles of coral-red flowers!   It seems to be an easy grower and from the looks, it should do well outside as a non-hardy garden or patio plant.

The plants being offered here are nice husky plants - currently 3" pots.
