Jurassic Jr.™ Purple Spec Rex Begonia (Begonia rex-cultorum) has a lacy appearance that begs you to look closer at the details. You may even see a tint of pink around the edges left by the rouge on fairies that have landed. After the last frost, she will grow in the deepest shade outdoors, growing 14-16" tall and 18-20" wide. Bring her indoors for winter and give her bright, indirect light to satisfy her leaves. Let her dry between waterings to keep her leaves fresh. She is like having a romantic rendezvous around with her lacy look.
