Jurassic Begonias

jurassic rex begonias

Jurassic Begonia, the name invokes images of large-leaved plants that might have been eaten or trampled by dinosaurs. It is an appropriate name for the Jurassic™ Begonias. The unusual colors, bold shapes, and textures of these Rex Begonias bring something unique to the landscape. Depending on the variety, the leaves can reach 5-9 inches on these mounding plants.

Jurassic Begonias were developed for their colorful foliage and unique patterns. They have upright, slightly spreading habits. They are outstanding foliage plants and will perform best in containers where they can be maintained. But they can also be used in landscapes. A thick mulching will help protect the root zone and retain moisture. Each variety of Jurassic Begonia adds a unique color and texture to plantings and combination planters.

New from us for 2024 are three varieties of Jurassic Megalo Begonias. Jurassic Megalo Begonias are more vigorous than the other Jurassic Begonias and also have larger leaves.
