Specificationshe beautiful range of Beleaf Begonia come in many colours and have been developed for optimal use as an indoor plant and is suited to the many situations you may desire to have beautiful foliage for company. 'Yukon Frost' has very unusual foliage. Being almost olive green with speckles and splotches of white, just like the frost for which it is named; with the added interest of red veins which are quite pronounced on the underside but still gives a hint of blush to the upper side making this a lovely contrasting plant to add to your jungle collection. The Beleaf collection have a very good leaf structure and the plant will produce many shoots giving them a long-lasting full compact growing habit. Beleaf Begonias enjoy bright light but please avoid full sun in the hotter times of year, and watering 1-2 times a week should be enough unless temperatures are high. A light liquid fertilizer monthly will stimulate growth and maintain the wellbeing of the plant. Removal of old faded leaves will allow new foliage to develop and emerge. Although named 'Yukon Frost' this plant will not tolerate frost! They are developed for sheltered semi-shaded areas and are a nice decoration for the table, large containers and hanging baskets. Beleaf are also quite resistant to pests and diseases.
