Begonia Rex

Begoniaceae
Rex Begonia

A Begonia Rex plant, also called a Painted-Leaf Begonia, a Fancy-Leaf Begonia, or King Begonia, is a colorful perennial flowering plant that originally came from India. A Begonia Rex is grown for its large colorful leaves rather than its small pink flowers. The leaves  come in a variety of shapes, sizes, color combinations, and patterns. Begonia rex plants are not easy plants to care for, especially for beginners; but don’t give up. Eventually you’ll find the right combination of water, light, food, and humidity that will make your Begonia Rex plant thrive.

These plants are considered poisonous and should be kept away from pets and children. Read more about common houseplants that are poisonous in Don’t Feed Me To Your Cat! A Guide to Poisonous Houseplants
