Begonia sp. Konmei China

$45

This Begonia came labeled as ‘Konmei China’.  I can’t seem to find any information about it, and when searching for Komnei online, the only locality I am seeing for Konmei is in Paupua NG.  A bit strange! There is some documentation of Konmei cuisine in Yunnan province, so perhaps this is the one, although the only two references are in regards to cuisine so I am still unsure if it’s a locality or not.  Perhaps a very remote place in China if that is its country of origin.  Foliage ranges from a pale green to a more emerald green (pictured here) with silvery-white bands between lateral veins.  The stem and leaf base are ruby red.  I’ve only had it about 6 months so cannot say how large it gets, but my largest plant is currently about 12″ tall and doesn’t seem to be slowing down.

Available plants are well rooted and have at least ten leaves.  They will be shipped bare root.
