Begonia Brevirimosa is is a stunning species, native to New Guinea. It has a shrub like growth habit with large, elliptical leaves. These leaves are banded with metallic red / pink, and a dark olive green. This species will grow tall and will generally need to be staked for support. It will produce pink flowers. 

Begonias are robust plants; they come in many sizes, colours and leaf shapes, and bear flowers for many months. This Begonia is sure to be an eye catcher with its icy, almost snow like foliage. 

 Care Specks:

These plants love partial shade outdoors or bright indirect light indoors

Allow it to mostly dry between waterings but not entirely

Give them well draining soil - adding about 20% to 30% perlite into your standard premium potting mix will do the trick.


These guys are tropical/sub-tropical so prefer high humidity - dark brown, crisp looking marks on leaf edges are usually caused by low humidity. 
Begonias rarely need trimming except to remove injured branches and old flower clusters.

Toxic to pets!


These plants are moderately frost tolerant but begonias are easily killed by hard freezes.

Each living plant is unique and may vary slightly in size, colour or shape.
