Red wax begonia

Begonia cucullata


The adaptable red wax begonia can be grown as an annual in colder climates, a perennial in warmer climates, or even as a houseplant on your desk.
They have glossy, waxy-appearing leaves that are green, bronze, or maroon in colour. Wax begonias can be used in a massed windowsill planting for vibrant indoor colour because they are not difficult indoor plants to grow.
