Impressive hardy begonia collected by Ozzie Johnson on Emei Shan in Sichuan.  This rhizomatous species looks tender as all get out but has overwintered in a number of Zone 7b gardens - admittedly not 7b for weeks at a time but still - heck yeah!  Brilliant red undersides and a burnished upper surface to the leaves are meant to go with the white flowers.  Some speculation that this is a natural hybrid with pedatifida but we know for sure it is a dandy.  Mulch in winter.
