Begonia 'Joyful Jasper' - An evergreen rhizomatous Begonia hybrid that grows to 12 to 18 inches tall by as wide with rich red maple leaf shaped leaves and pale pink flowers in spring. Plant in full to part day coastal sun with perhaps some protection from sun in hot inland locations. Give regular irrigation. It has proven hardy in our trials to temperatures out in the open down to 32 F. This is a very attractive plant for container gardening, for use in landscape beds or even as an indoor plant. It is a bit reminiscent of a red leaved Heuchera, but sturdier. This plant is an introduction from J. Berry Nursery of Grand Saline, Texas as part of their Crown Jewel Begonias, who notes this variety was bred for heat tolerance. We received our first plant of it in August 2019 from John Schoustra of Greenwood Daylily farms who was given the plant by Jim Berry at the J. Berry Nursery display for the 2018 California Spring Trials (CAST) at Windmill Nursery in Buellton California,  The information provided on this page is based on research we have conducted about this plant in our nursery's library, from what we have found about it on reliable online sources, as well as from observations in our nursery of crops of this plant as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens. We will also incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if it includes cultural information that would aid others in growing  Begonia 'Joyful Jasper'.
