Begonia Lucerna, also known as Corallina de Lucerna or Angel Wing Begonia, is known for its dramatic olive green leaves that look like angel’s or bat wings and silver dots. The bottom of the leaf is dark red what makes the plant even more picturesque. The flowers appear in large clusters that hang from the stems. It was hybridised in 1892 by Wettstein of Lucerne, Switzerland. Begonia Lucerna is one of the most picturesque plants!
Begonia Lucerna can grow up to 2m in height and produces pink flowers from late winter throughout spring. Begonia is highly susceptible to root rot, therefore you should always be careful to not overwater it. Also, when watering it, pour water directly onto the soil, ensuring the leaves remain dry.
