This beauty brings positivity and light to the landscape. Burgundy-speckled chartreuse, ruffled leaves reaching toward the sun, inspire us to look on the bright side of life. It’s impossible to be blue with Positively Peridot in the garden. Positively Peridot is perfect as an indoor houseplant or outdoors planted in the landscape under the canopy of a shade tree. Thick leaves help the Crown Jewel Begonias withstand higher temperatures and the foliage color gets darker with cooler temperatures.
