Some of the best plants for the Southwest come from hybridizers in South Africa and Australia. Begonia ‘Alice Faye’ is no exception. And two of our followers will win one of the gorgeous plants from Steve’s Leaves of Dallas!
Hybridized by Lyla Kirkpatrick of Perth, Australia, this cane-like begonia hybrid has been noted for holding its flowers similarly to a hydrangea.
You can grow Alice Faye outdoors when temperatures are between 50 and 95 degrees F. Be sure to bring it in before frost and protect it with shade when daytime highs are over 95.
Let your begonia dry slightly between waterings and it should thrive and grow to 15 or 20 inches tall. Learn more about this gorgeous plant from the Steve’s Leaves catalog.
