Bred by Lynne Dibley at the nursery in 2015, Begonia 'Silver Spirit' was first sold in spring 2017.
One of an innovative breeding line of quick growing begonias, a new style combining the colourful foliage of Begonia rex with the taller growing cane Begonias.
It offers a broad spectrum of uses indoors or outdoors, combined within exotic summer bedding schemes creating both height and colour.
Grow indoors until established and then plant outdoors in partial shade after the danger of frost has passed. Lift before the first frost.
It is being launched at RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2017 and entered into the RHS Chelsea Plant of the Year competition.
