Begonia Ramirez ~ Ramirez Begonia

Begonia Ramirez is grown more for the foliage than for the flowers, though both are beautiful. The Ramirez begonia will grow about 3 feet tall and wide. The foliage is spectacular backlit with all of its glistening hairs. With such a strong foliage color this works spectacularly as a specimen plant. Begonia Ramirez will be damaged by temperatures that dip into the 20's and killed in the mid-20°'s. Begonia Ramirez will tolerate more sun than most of the other begonias. I have planted this begonia in nearly Full Sun near the coast. Irrigate Begonia Ramirez at the base as water on the leaves can cause mildew.
