This summer was brutal on the prairie -- hardly any rain in August and temperatures and heat indicies way above 100. It takes a touch plant to not only survive but thrive.
This begonia is a survivor which blooms it's heart out.
It's planted in an old concrete planter and it provides some lovely bloom to the patio. I'm not sure what variety it is but it's the second year I've been able to find this particular begonia and have planted it in this particular spot. With very little water (either from me or the sky), it has thrived. Alas, it is lost to frost and the concrete pot is too big to carry inside for the winter. Next spring, I will be looking for more of this begonia for this pot. It's a real winner at Linderhof!
