The Maple-Leaf Begonia

Most Semi-tuberous begonias come from South Africa and a few from Bolivia and Brazil. One favourite is Begonia dregei, also known as ‘The Maple Leaf Begonia’, which was the first to be discovered by J.F. Drege near the coast of South Africa on shaded slopes in the Cape of Good Hope.

Semi-tuberous begonias grow well under shade cloth in an area with good air circulation, if in a frost free zone; or they can be grown in controlled conditions in a glasshouse.
