  • 'Helter Skelter,' where large, spiral leaves dance in a vibrant fun fair of colours. Aptly named, this variety of Begonia rex boasts whirling leaves adorned with artistic pink and white splashes against a dark backdrop, creating a truly distinctive and eye-catching display for any semi-shaded indoor spot. 'Helter Skelter' continues to enchant with small sprays of pink flowers that sporadically bloom in winter.

    We’re proud to support our British growers, and having been raised by one of our trusted UK nurseries, this indoor plant has a low carbon footprint, which makes it perfect for an eco-friendly collection or gift.

  • Home care:
    Rex begonias require special care during the summer months. It's best to keep them in shaded areas and provide ample watering, ensuring proper drainage and maintaining a humid atmosphere around the plants. Avoid wetting the leaves or the crown.

    As winter approaches, reduce the frequency of watering. Allow the compost surface to dry out before watering again. These begonias thrive with a minimum winter temperature of 13°C (55°F) across all varieties.

    For optimal growth, feed them every two weeks from May to September using a high nitrogen fertiliser.
