Description How to Grow Delivery

Begonia 'Rock' is a small cultivar of the larger species, Begonia masoniana, and makes a compact specimen which is more suited to growing on an indoor windowsill. Each textured leaf is boldly marked with a dark cross set against a contrasting light green background, earning it the popular name of ‘Iron Cross Begonia’. Small hairs on the leaves give them a unique sheen. This RHS award winning, rhizomatous begonia makes a wonderful foliage specimen for the home. Bears small greenish-white flowers. Height and Spread: 30cm (12").

1 x 12cm Potted Plant (KC8508)

Place your Begonia in a bright spot that is not in direct sunlight – an east or west-facing windowsill is ideal. Water regularly but avoid overwatering or letting the plant sit in water. Aim the water directly onto the compost, avoiding splashing the leaves as much as possible. Feed fortnightly between May and September with a plant food that is high in potassium (for cane-types where abundant flowering is most important) or high in nitrogen (for rex-type or foliage varieties). Reduce watering in winter, allowing the surface of the compost to begin to dry out before watering again. In winter keep your begonias above a minimum temperature of 13°C. Plants can be brought outside in summer once night temperature reliably exceeds this.
