About Clubed Begonia

Begonia cucullata is a flowering species of Begonia that is popular for its brightly colored blossoms. The flowers may come in red, pink, or white and bloom throughout the year in warmer climates. This species is native to South America but is considered an invasive species in the southeast United States, causing disruption to local ecosystems. If you live in the southeast, it’s best to grow this species indoors to prevent seeds from taking root in the wild. 🪴
