Begonia 'Joe Hayden'-


Availability: Out of stock

Quantity Available: 0

Begonia ‘Joe Hayden’ is a taller growing cultivar that has slightly orange colored stems and a very dark burgundy to black foliage.


Begonias are very popular plants for both indoor and outdoor gardeners due to their wide variety of colorful foliage and ease of care.  These colorful, quick growing, broad leaved plants are also called Rex Begonias with hundreds of hybrids that come in many varieties that are often chosen more for their leaf color than insignificant blossoms.  They prefer shaded but humid conditions with rich soil.  They tend to rot in soggy soil, so keep them well drained.  Their leaf size varies per type but generally reach up to 9” long and 5” wide.  They are most often a bushy growing plant that will reach about 12-18” tall and wide, making them a great candidate for a small patio bush in either a pot or hanging basket or also as an accent houseplant.


USDA Hardiness Zones 10-12


Container Gardens/Terrariums/Houseplant:

For the above reasons, this plant is an excellent candidate to keep as a house plant.  At smaller sizes like Josh’s Frogs sells it at, the plant will also do well in a container garden or terrarium for quite a while before it will have to be taken out and transplanted.


Josh's Frogs offers a wide variety of glass terrariums, container garden soils, drainage layers and other supplies for all of your indoor gardening needs.


Vivariums/Animal Terrariums:

This plant is a very popular vivarium plant when purchased at a small size like Josh’s Frogs offers.  Since it does well in moist, humid conditions, Begonias do well in a vivarium and will create a nice thick foliage that can be placed in the middle-back areas of the tank.  Their broad leaves allow many creatures to take cover underneath.  


As good practice, Josh's Frogs recommends washing all plants thoroughly removing as much soil as possible with dechlorinated water before placing them in their final home. Live plants from Josh's Frogs are treated only with products that are OMRI Listed© for use in organic production. Live plants may vary in color, size and appearance.




The plant pictured is in a 2.5" pot.

Fantastic Begonia Review by Wayne
Bought this plant over a year ago. It is planted in ABG mix from JoshsFrogs and constantly needs to be trimmed back. It is growing insanely fast and definitely will reach the 12 inch height with proper lighting. Beautiful begonia and well worth the price. (Posted on 4/20/2015)
