Plant of the Day: Hardy Begonia


Just when I was sure no hardy begonia  (Begonia grandis) had survived the weather ups and downs, and all the garden creatures this winter and spring, my husband found some growing in the mazus at one end of the patio.


I wound up finding a couple more close by, and today I transplanted one of them to what I thought would be a better place in the garden. By this evening a busy little chipmunk had dug around and underneath it. (Grr!) I tucked it back in—the plant, not the chipmunk—but will have to wait and see what happens.
