Z 8-11 š i 18/24/18 PP25263 (as 'Cool Breeze Em') A - Begonia 'Cool Breeze Glacier' PP25120 EU43385 ('TNCBG1') Another plant in the great COOL BREEZE ™ Series, this very vigorous selection shows well; spring, summer outside, and especially in winter indoors. An elegant house plant, it appreciates a cooler home and isn't stunted by coolness, like the older begonias. It grows as a very round mound, perfect for a manicured patio pot, or as a neat garden plant. The leaves are very similar to its siblings, rounded, ruffled and possessing a red back. Z 8-11 š i 18/18/18 Begonia 'Cool Breeze Rouge' PP25080 EU43386 ('TNCBR1') 'Cool Breeze Rouge' is a sister to 'Cool Breeze Pewter' and is more of a show- off. They are similar in youth, but 'Rouge' soon goes her own way by taking on a beautiful port wine glaze over her leaves as the heat climbs. The leaves of 'Rouge' are slightly more rounded than those of 'Pewter', but they are an even match in culture and care. Both are easy, will take heat and humidity, but are quite tolerant of cool weather too.
