'Thurstonii Elephant Ear' begonia is similar in looks to many varieties that grow indoors as houseplants, with its thick, bronzy leaves and deep veining, but this one can live outdoors during the summer season in shady spots of the garden. Its handsome foliage grows 15 to 18 inches tall, and would pair beautifully in container planters or hanging baskets with fuchsias, impatiens, or tuberous begonias. Consider using this in borders as a dramatic backdrop for summer flowers or interspersed with ferns or grasses. As the temperatures drop, 'Thurstonii Elephant Ear' begonia can be brought indoors to a well-lit room but no direct sun.
