With fabulous polka-dotted foliage and exquisitely shaped leaves, Begonia 'White Ice' is a real head-turner. The intricate coloration of the leaves on the 'White Ice' give it the appearance of being hand painted. As the foliage of the Begonia 'White Ice' matures, unlike other plants, the details of each spot become more pronounced and beautiful. The National Begonia Society assimilated the spots to freckles of white ice, we think they look more like a fabulous fabric pattern from a dress from the 50s. 

Begonia 'White Ice' is a new hybrid that was created by crossing the common Whiskey Begonia and one of our shop favorites, the 'Flamingo Queen'.
