Bright red color stands out in any container or garden bed, and Begonia Funky Red brings on a bright red color explosion despite thriving in shade. This easy-care annual flourishes in partial to nearly full shade. It also can take some heat, so it’s a great choice for entryways, patios and under the dappled shade of trees in peak summer heat.

These stunning red-flowered plants fare best in containers, which works well for their light and soil preferences. They reach nearly a foot high and 18 inches across as they grow in a mounding and trailing shape. The deep green leaves serve as a backdrop for the bright red fully double flowers, which appear nonstop from planting time until frost. This is one of the easiest and most striking plants for containers placed in shady areas around a home or garden.

Funky® Red Begonia Care

Plant your begonia in rich soil or potting mix that contains some organic matter. Water it well after planting and give it consistent water throughout the growing season. Begonias are known for their easy care. They should need no pruning. Gardeners can carefully pinch off faded flowers or leaves to keep energy going to new blooms.

Fertilize transplanted begonias after planting and a few times throughout the growing season. The plants need lots of energy to keep producing those deep red blooms. To continue enjoying Begonia Funky Red, you can bring the container indoors to extend its season. Cut back on watering a little bit while indoors, but enjoy the flowers for a few more weeks.

Funky® Red Begonia Spacing

Funny Red is a great container filler that just might steal the show from a taller featured plant. When growing several in a container, space them up to a foot apart. For a garden bed, space the plants about 18 inches from center to center.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
