Begonia Pegasus is originally from the subtropical and tropical areas of South and Central American, Africa, and Asia. It is grown for its thick foliage, which is dark green with a silver variegation. It will grow in shade but does best in part-shade.

Pegasus flowers in the summer and fall. Its blooms attract hummingbirds and is perfect for combination planters that have vigorous varieties.

Proven Accents® Pegasus® Begonia Care

Begonia Pegasus needs regular fertilization to keep its foliage in the best condition. Water Begonia Pegasus enough to keep a consistent level of moisture in the plant. Do not let it sit in standing water, though, as that will kill it. Since it needs regular fertilization, Begonia Pegasus just needs average soil.

As a tender perennial, Begonia Pegasus won’t make it through the winter outside. However, Begonia Pegasus makes a happy houseplant, so you can overwinter them in the house.

Proven Accents® Pegasus® Begonia Spacing

Under ideal conditions, Begonia Pegasus can get up 18 inches tall and 18 inches wide. For it to get that big means it needs room to spread out. Give Begonia Pegasus 16-18 inches between plants so it has that room.

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.
