    Escargot Begonia - BEAUTIFUL! This year is the first time that I have had these in my flower beds and they will definitely always be a part of my yearly plant.

    Escargot Begonia - BEAUTIFUL! A great addition to any collection where unique shape and texture are desired and moderate light level is the rule. Deeply spiraled leaves marked in bands of silver and green are the hallmark of this European hybrid. Creating a stir in the world of potted plants, 'Escargot' has proven to be a strong grower that creates a full dense specimen. Hardy to Zone 10 and higher for outdoors. Partial sun, grows to 10-16" in container, minimum temperature 60°.

This beauty is another variety of coleus. Sun-tolerant coleus with patterned veins is easy to grow. It is an annual foliage plant that thrives in warm weather with moist soil conditions. You also can plant it in container gardens or landscape beds for season-long color. Most varieties can be grown in sun or shade, but often develop more intense coloration in bright light.

Begonia rex ‘Escargot’ might just be the perfect house plant, as it resists diseases and insects. Will do very well in a conservatory, a greenhouse, a windowsill or in a summer patio/yard container; perennial evergreen with flowers in fall; hardy in zones 10-11

I am going to plant red and yellow begonias in my garden. They are similar to carnations. In early July I found that one out front had come up but none of the others ever came up.

While I applaud the overall esthetics of this, it's horrible for the plant. Still, so pretty!

Escargot Begonia. I had one of these with small pink flowers. Too bad a late freeze killed it. It was very unique.

The tall, thick-stemmed begonia is B. 'Paul Hernandez'. Bottom center is upright rhizomatous Begonia 'Little Brother Montgomery'. The purple plant to the left is 'Persian Shield' (Strobilanthes dyerianus), not a begonia.

Bonfire® begonias. Sometimes all you need is one plant and one container to colour up your patio!
