Torch Cane Begonia

Cane Begonia
Begonia 'Torch'
Synonyms: Angel Wing Begonia

This Begonia has really burst on the scene the last few years. They are being used more and more and to good effect. My local annual grower has been producing these Begonias in a variety of sizes. Angel Wing Begonias grow really well in containers and can add a bright spot in a shady area of the garden. I haven’t tried them as bedding plants on a large scale but my limited experience has been good with the plants forming a low mat of good color.

Since its Sunday here is the bonus snapshot. It is a picture that has been hanging around so I thought I would pot it and move out of the folder of pictures I look in everyday.
