Begonia 'Irene Nuss' can be a large free flowering shrub in the landscape. Canes will reach 4-5 feet. Begonia Irene Nuss is hardy to the mid 20°s F. By hiding it against a window of the house it has survived temperatures briefly drifting into the mid teens. The dark green leaves have a dark red backside. The pendulous flowers last on the bush for weeks in huge clusters. I use Begonia Irene Nuss frequently near the coast and in protected locations in the inland valleys. Due to the preference for very good drainage I usually plant Begonia 'Irene Nuss' in large containers.
