This is a very striking climber for a cool, shady conservatory or indoors. Resembling the Begonia Rex plant the leaves are dark green and silver with a purple reverse. It does have creamy-green flowers but the foliage is the real feature here.

It can be stood outside for the summer but is very tender and must be brought in well before any frosts. Shade from hot sun to prevent stress and give ample water in summer. Reduce watering in the winter. It is a vigorous climber - the growth can be restricted by keeping it in a fairly small container of about 30 cm across. It is capable of reaching 12 foot or more in a very large container or planted in a conservatory border.
