Begonia sutherlandii subsp. sutherlandii is a hardy, deciduous, truly beautiful tuberous Begonia. The large, heart-shaped glossy green leaves are in sharp contrast to the red stems and veins. This is a striking feature of this plant. Pendulous clusters of glistening apricot-coloured flowers are borne from August to April.
This plant makes a spectacular container plant or hanging basket. It can also be planted in frost free areas, in shaded, well watered rock gardens or near shady water features. Used in traditional medicine. There are often bulbils in the axils of the leaves. These can be used to propagate the plant.
Plant in shade in well-composted soil.
