T Rex™ Ruby Slippers Rex Begonia

Begonia 'Ruby Slippers' PP #24,992

An eye-catching selection with fantastic foliage. Big, glossy, ruby-red leaves have a dramatic black center, as well as a touch of black on the edges. Great in shade containers or as a house plant, but also does well in amended garden soil. A showy addition to a shady border. Grows as a perennial in mild winter regions; treat as an annual elsewhere.
