Gryphon Begonia

Sensational foliage is uniquely shaped with a stunning color combination; avocado green background, marbled with steel gray, maroon veins, stems, and leaf backside all on deeply cut, maple shaped leaves. Dramatic when placed as a solo container plant or in a shade garden complemented with Coleus and New Guinea Impatiens. Adaptable as a houseplant, bring indoors over winter for a large, voluminous plant the next season. Strong, durable foliage grows well in shade to part shade.

I love these plants!

As all Pinetree seeds, they were well packaged and arrived in a timely manner. The Gryphon begonia seeds are easily germinated and grown. Mine are by the window and thriving. Being begonias, they're not fond of hot sun outside but make for wonderful houseplants, growing to impressive sizes. The leaves are gorgeous with their red backs. Pinetree has a great selection!

Great germination

This is the only seed company where I could find Begonia Gryphon. I received the seeds promptly and had 100% germination.
