begonia rex 'Escargot'


'Escargot' was aptly named for it's lush silver and green fuzzy foliage spiraling inwards like a snail's shell. Interesting to look at and very easy to care for, it likes to be kept evenly moist in well drained soil, requires part shade or bright indirect light, and a warm environment. It resists diseases and even handles a little neglect. Pale pink flowers appear but the leaves sprouting from the rich red stems are the real focal point of this quite perfect houseplant.
