This stunning hybrid was created by Kit Jeans-Mounger in 1989 and is a rhizomatous type with large spiral leaves. Begonia ‘Cowardly Lion’ rex offers rich golden tones with chocolate coloured leaf veins which become darker as the plant matures. The parentage to this hybrid is B. carrieae and B. ‘Botik’

Like most begonias this stunner prefers a loose, well-draining soil to ensure adequate air-rating of the roots and ensure its not to stay too wet. To ensure over watering does not occur only water when the top two inches of the potting medium is dry.

Please note that Begonias some times don’t post well, so keep in mind that you may receive a plant with floppy/brown edged leaves. They generally bounce back pretty quickly and will push out fresh leaves once potted up.

(You will receive a bare rooted plant similar to the one seen in the images. Each living plant is unique and may vary slightly in size, colour or shape.)
