Begonia listada, the striped begonia, is a species of flowering plant in the family Begoniaceae, native to Brazil. Its leaves are velvet to the touch and have a striking, vivid, bright green stripe in the middle of its dark green leaves, encompassed by a beautiful lighter margin.
Begonias grow best in well-drained, humus-rich soil with moderate water. Apply a slow-release fertilizer sparingly in spring. Beautiful accent plant for borders and containers, or grow as houseplants! Protect from freezing temperatures!
Please note that Begonias are notorious for not posting 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.
