Beg. Five and Dime

Perhaps our best seller.  An extremely easy grower that stays small and looks great.  Round, spiraled, silver leaves, flushed pink and edged in black.  Great, small rhizomatous.

Beg. Five and Dime

Average Rating 5 out of 5

Leaves About the Size of Dimes and Just as Shiny!

This little guy arrived from Violet Barn in great shape about a year ago, a slow but steady and hardy grower that I'm happy to have added to my small collection. I've bought four other varieties of the fancy red/pink rex begonias at local stores, but I'm more partial to the unusual plants that I only find offered here. Thank you for your great selection, Violet Barn! Need more space, but I hope to choose a few more in the future!

Great little grower

I had great luck with this guy. He doesn't look like much but he grows into a really handsome fella.

Absolutely adorable!

I'm in love with the tiny little leaves and compact growth of this plant! It has already put out 2 new leaves in the week since receiving it. I highly recommend this little guy!

I'm always in awe of how healthy the plants are from Violet Barn and this begonia is no different. I'm new to these plants and I'm in love with this little fellow, he's growing well and I'll definitely be back for more! :)

Five and Dime

This is one of my favorite begonias. I have had many over the years, and have given them as gifts to fellow flower lovers. It is a flower that is lovely by itself, or added to a grouping. It is one of my houseplants that I consider a "cheery" flower,that brightens up my room.
