    Friends, I was at the excellent East Ruston Old Vicarage Garden in Norfolk last weekend, and I spied this plant growing up in a tropical border. I assume that it is some form of begonia, but have failed to identify it. Tried asking Google, but had no success. Having watched Craig’s really interesting video on hardy begonias, I have been looking to expand my own collection. Many thanks

    Hmmmm, its definitely a Begonia but not a species I recognise. It might be a bedding Begonia that’s shown more resilience than expected.

    I saw these 2 bedding Begonias in a friends garden recently @mikepnsims , the leaves look very similar to the one you posted.
