USBG: Begonia capillipes


When I first saw this plant in the US Botanic Garden in late February 2012, I thought it was some sort of weird Hoya--before I saw the flowers. And then the tag. And realized it was just a crazy Begonia, B. capillipes. Plants are tricky like that.

  1. Hi Kenneth! Thanks for your comment on my blog when my Mom died...it was so nice of you!

    I surely thought this would have been a Hoya plant too! I dearly love Hoyas but I kill them!!!

    What an interesting Begonia! WOW! Very nice thick leaves and such delicate flowers! Amazing!
