Plant Features

Our Crackling Fire® Red Begonia Plant is a compact and prolific bloomer, as is the entire Crackling Fire® series. This red is so intense, a true red, the purely orange stamens at the core of each blossom only serve to accentuate and show-off this astounding coloration. Shiny, green foliage with purple-red, cut edges backdrops the even shinier, waxy-looking blossoms. A stunning specimen for outdoor containers, you'll definitely want to grow this one indoors for the holidays! This shade tolerant plant might be the new poinsettia. Purely gorgeous!
