Begonia Beleaf™ Arctic Breeze®Back in stock: NOW
Cool metallic silver colouring sets this Begonia apart - its frosty appearance looks right out of the arctic tundra, and yet it loves warmth and humidity. Can be grown indoors and outdoors if protected from frost. Beleaf begonias are bushy and compact, healthy and low maintenance, and grow faster than traditional Begonia rex varieties.
Begonia Beleaf 'Arctic Breeze'®DESCRIPTION: Exotic foliage plant with large heart-shaped textured leaves, vibrantly patterned. 'Arctic Breeze' has mature silver foliage, plum red below, with fine dark green stripes. The colour will develop as the plant grows. 'Beleaf' Begonias are new varieties bred in the Netherlands by Berghoef Plants.
USES: Popular houseplant in warm humid rooms. Striking hanging basket or container plant for summer. Ideal outdoor underplanting in shaded and semi-shaded tropical gardens.
PLANTING: Plant in a shaded or semi-shaded location with filtered light or indirect sunlight. Begonia rex appreciates a humid atmosphere so if the air is dry, give it a light mist spray with water..
CARE: Water lightly but regularly during the first 12 weeks or until the plant is established. Avoid over-watering or over-feeding Begonia rex. Apply liquid fertiliser at half dilution every 8 weeks for best results. Foliage may die back during the cooler months when plants become dormant. Avoid feeding and reduce watering until plants develop new leaves. Repot during spring only if plants become rootbound. Protect from frost.
HEIGHT & WIDTH: 45 cm H x 45 cm W.
