The angel-wing begonia gets its name from its asymmetric shaped leaves, which come in an array of different colors and patterns.
Angel-wings, sometimes called cane-like begonias, are some of the largest begonias, reaching up to five feet tall.
Since begonias are native to the tropics, they prefer spots with high humidity and lots of filtered sunlight. They can also thrive indoors.
If you live in a cooler part of the state, be sure to protect your outdoor angel-wings from frost.
Angel-wing begonias produce large clusters of white, pink, orange, or red flowers, blooming profusely early spring through autumn. An occasional light pruning will also stimulate new growth and more flowers.
