Begonia ‘Sherwood Forest’

£18.99

Begonia ‘Sherwood Forest’ is a relatively new and captivating begonia variety. The most striking feature of Begonia ‘Sherwood Forest’ are its long, pointed, and partially winged leaves. These leaves boast a rich, dark green base colour that provides a beautiful contrast to the highlight of the plant – silvery-white speckles. The speckling pattern can vary from leaf to leaf, adding to its unique charm.

The exact origins of Begonia ‘Sherwood Forest’ are unknown, but it’s believed to be a relatively recent hybrid possibly involving Begonia maculata.
