Pink, Red, White or Orange: Pick Your Top Color of This Easy Care Favorite
The Angel Wing Begonia gets its name from the shape of its wings. One of the easiest begonias to care for (and how heavenly is that?), this popular plant grows on upright stems with glossy leaves that streaked and tinged in red. Its showy flower clusters range from pink to red, white or orange.
The Angel Wing Begonia thrives in bright indirect sunlight. The more light they’re exposed to, the more flowers they will produce. Pinch off the flowers as they fade where the stem connects to the cane. Unlike other begonias, Angel Wings are not self-cleaning – deadheading encourages more blooms. Water when the soil feels dry, and place it in a spot with lots of humidity. As with all begonias, keep away from cold drafts. You can grow Angel Wings into a dwarf plant for your desk, or as a large, bushy shrub-like floor plant.
