Begonia luxurians (Palm Leaf Begonia)
€24.99 “Price excl. VAT: €22.02”
Native to the rainforests of Brazil, palm leaf begonia, Begonia luxurians, looks like a palm tree. It bears large, palmate leaves, with coppery undersides, on red-purple, cane-like stems. Inconspicuous clusters of pale yellow to white, fragrant flowers are borne from spring into summer. It’s perfect for growing as part of an exotic planting scheme – if given the right growing conditions it can reach 3m in height.
Grow Begonia luxurians under glass in a loam-based compost out of direct sunlight, ideally on a watered gravel tray to maintain high humidity levels. It can be moved to a sheltered, partially shaded spot outside in summer. Protect from frost or take stem cuttings in autumn to insure against winter losses.
Supplied in a 16cm terracotta pot
