Strawberry Begonia

Plant Type:

SHADE PERENNIALS

Saxifraga stolonifera 'Nezu Jinja' - All rounded green leaves are attractively veined in silvery mint-green on this bold form. The leaves are very large, up to 6 inches wide as compared to other selections. Panicles rise from 12 up to 18 inches tall in May and carry a galaxy of white flowers in huge numbers. It's really something in flower. It will weave into a beautiful ground cover and, if happy, won't take long for that blanket to be woven. This is a nice form of the Strawberry Begonia which this plant is neither strawberry nor begonia; nor Strawberry Geranium, another common misnomer. These common names... oh, don't get me started! Part sun in the morning, dappled or open shade. Best in moist, fertile soil but will tolerate average, draining ground. Established saxifrage from offset.
