Begonia rex Red Robin

Description

Begonia rex Red Robin is a true show stopper with its bright ruby red leaves which have a dark almost black centre. This baby is popular around the world for its coloured foliage and loves a humid, tropical environment. It looks great in tropical gardens as a border or can be used in hanging pots indoors to add a pop of colour.  

Begonias don't love their leaves wet so try bottom-up watering, that way they can take the water from the base of the pot upwards. Try sitting your pot in a larger bucket of water for 10-15mins then let drain. Give a liquid feed in the growing season only. In the wintertime, your plants tend to go dormant so cut right back and stop feeding your plant during this time.

Quick Facts: 

  • What to use me for: In a tropical garden or indoors just hanging around in your pot

  • I grow to: 50cm high, 50cm wide 

  • Where to place me: Full shade in a garden or bright indirect light indoors 

  • Watering conditions: I like nice, moist soil please don't let my soil dry out completely and try bottom-up watering.

Our plants are beautifully grown, mature tube stock with well-developed roots. They are guaranteed sun-hardened, can be planted directly into the ground and are excellent performers for your garden.

Please take care when choosing your plants. Some plants are poisonous and individuals may be more sensitive or react differently
