Begonia x elatior 'Rebecca'

Rieger Begonia

Bushy begonia has attractive foliage with small, bare leaves. The flowers are pink to white. Stems are upright and zig-zag between the nodes. Pinching tips and pruning outer stems in the growing season gives a bushier plant, good for hanging. This plant enjoys filtered light.  Soil should ideally be moist. Begonias grow very well in peat-based compost also. 

Our products are available for retail purchase only. Please call for availability as stock levels fluctuate throughout the season. We are unable to ship plants or other products.
