Begonia 'Garden Angel Plum' (Hardy Begonia)

Hardy Begonia, Garden Angel Series, Shrub Begonia


Noted for its impressive evergreen foliage, Begonia 'Garden Angel Plum' is an upright, mounding perennial with gorgeous, plum to pink, maple-like leaves, adorned with a bold, jagged shape and dark metallic coal-black veins. In late summer to fall, clusters of bright pinkish-red flowers are held above the leaves. But the primary contribution of this hardy Begonia is the beauty of its rich foliage. Fast growing, it makes a large plant that soon makes an impact thanks to its spectacular coloring. Perfect for shaded beds and borders or containers.

  • Grows up to 30 in. tall (75 cm) and 24 in. across (60 cm).
  • Prefers part to full shade and fertile, rich, moist and well-drained soils. Provide good air circulation. Applying a winter mulch will increase the survivability in borderline areas.
  • Cover the foliage with a deep mulch once the frost has hit the leaves.
  • The eye-catching foliage mixes well with hostas, ferns and other shade perennials.
