Unknown Houseplant Known!
Earlier, I posted about a houseplant I bought and didn't know what it was. Well, I suspect it's a strawberry begonia which makes perfect sense with the strawberry-like runners I'd noted before. What made me especially happy is that it isn't a sensitive houseplant! I can keep it outside! There are reports of it being cold hardy to zone 6A, and I'm in zone 8B. Huzzah! I just need to tell my neighbor because I gave her a few of the babies. That should make her happy. I was in the green house at Natural Gardener, saw a twin of my plant, and checked their label. Thank goodness for great nurseries that label their plants. Phew.
