With their unique foliage and bright flowers, Polka dot begonias are the classic easy-care Houseplant. A classic for good reasons, they grow well indoors and come in a huge ever-increasing variety of colours and shapes. It’s a classic 70s houseplant making a huge comeback - for good reason, its stunning easy-care nature makes it hard not to love!  Polka Dot Begonia, also known as Clown Begonia or Spotted begonia is the common name for Begonia Maculata. 

Cane-type begonias are stunning and super easy to grow. The angel wing begonia grows on upright stems, it has interesting dark green leaves covered with lots of silver spots and magnificent abundant displays of flowers all over the plant.

The genus contains more than 1,800 different plant species so it's going to be difficult to collect them all! 

The Begonias are native to moist subtropical and tropical climates. the plant was originally kept as an ornamental plant by the Chinese in the 14 century but is actually named after a European, Michel Begon, a 16th-century botanist. 

Angel Wing Begonias are popular because they are hardy, the flowers are long-lived and they grow in shade so make ideal houseplants. The secret to keeping them flowering regularly is access to good indirect light and regular light waterings. They enjoy being damp but hate being in waterlogged soil. Imagine the roots need to breathe and you won't go far wrong.

It comes from the Atlantic Brazilian rainforests where it is an understorey plant, so it likes shady conditions, keeps out of direct sunlight, ideally on a watered gravel tray to maintain high humidity levels. It can be moved to a sheltered, partially shaded spot outside in summer.  If this plant gets leggy, simply cut back and start again or let it wild and grow free. 

If you decide to give this interesting houseplant as a gift, we can include a free, handwritten card - just specify your message at the basket stage of delivery and we’ll do the rest!  We won’t give the game away with paperwork or prices either so it’ll be a wonderful surprise!
