Angel Wing Begonia

Begonia Coccinea

Angel Wing Begonia Plants, first found in South America, make up a large portion of the cane begonia group. All cane begonia plants have long stems with “joints” on them. The leaves and flowers of begonia plants grow out of these joints. Angel Wing begonias have large, “angel wing” shaped, dark green leaves, often with metallic silver specks. The underside of the plant leaf is usually a deep red. Angel Wing begonias produce hanging clusters of delicate flowers in red, white, orange, or pink. The intensity of the color of the flowers and leaves depends upon how much light the plant gets. Angel Wing begonias are beautiful, easy- care, flowering plants that brighten your home all year. They are considered poisonous and should be kept away from pets and children. Read more about common houseplants that are poisonous in my book Don’t Feed Me To Your Cat!
