Begonia'Old Blue' has large oval shaped leaves that are sparsely covered with long white hairs. Most if the leaf is a grey colour with a silver shimmery band around the leaf. Under certain light conditions the gray in the leaf has a bluish iridescence. The back of the leaf is red and they  bloom most of the year with graceful blush pink flowers.

This is a newer hybrid created by American hybridiser Don Miller in 2012. This stunning begonia is a rhizomatous type the had a mounding growth habit. B. ‘Old Blue’ has a parentage of B. U489 and B. sizemoreae.

Like most begonias this stunner prefers a loose, well-draining soil to ensure adequate air-rating of the roots and ensure its not to stay too wet. To ensure over watering does not occur only water when the top two inches of the potting medium is dry.

Please note that Begonias some times don’t post well, so keep in mind that you may receive a plant with floppy/brown edged leaves. They generally bounce back pretty quickly and will push out fresh leaves once potted up.

(You will receive a bare rooted plant similar to the one seen in the images. Each living plant is unique and may vary slightly in size, colour or shape.)
