The textured green foliage of the ‘Sterling Moon’ Lunar Lights™ Begonia appears dusted with silver and mint-green flecks, giving this low-maintenance plant an ethereal look. Small, salmon-pink blooms appear spring through fall and coordinate with the pink undersides of the leaves and the pink veining on new leaves. Although, the spade-shaped and pointed foliage is the real showstopper of this plant. This Begonia is a perennial in USDA zones 7 through 9. 

Use this Begonia is borders, containers, or mass plantings to provide lush silver-hued foliage that stands out against traditionally green plants while also providing color all year long in zones where it grows as a perennial. The ‘Sterling Moon’ Lunar Lights™ Begonia is disease- and heat-tolerant, making it a welcome addition to any garden. This plant attracts butterflies for added convenience.

‘Sterling Moon’ Lunar Lights™ Begonia Plant Care

Plant in part sun to part shade and use well-draining loamy soil. Begonias have medium water needs, so let the top couple of inches dry out before giving the plant a drink. Newly planted Begonias and plants in containers will need water more frequently. Water the soil around the plant and keep the foliage dry when possible to reduce the chances of mold or mildew forming. This plant is disease-resistant, so leaf disease is not a significant concern, but good habits can further reduce the risk of a problem forming.

This plant is not a heavy feeder but fertilize in the spring to promote new growth and blooms. Trim back any damaged sections and remove spent flowers, but otherwise, this plant does not need much pruning.

‘Sterling Moon’ Lunar Lights™ Begonia Plant Spacing

How far apart your space the ‘Sterling Moon’ Lunar Lights™ Begonia depends on the look you want to achieve. Space plants 2 feet apart for a hedge-like look, but space 4 feet or more to allow each plant to stand out and have room to grow. This plant should be 24 to 30 inches tall and about 20 inches wide.

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.

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).

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.


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!


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.
