Begonia ‘Lucerna’ is the old classic “Angel Wing Begonia”. It was hybridized in 1892 by Wettstein of Lucerne, Switzerland. It was originally called ‘Corallina de Lucerna’. This is a large grower and flowers frequently. The leaves are olive green with small silver spots on the top and red on the bottom. The flowers are rosey red to pink depending on the amount of light it gets. The flowers are darker in higher light. The flowers appear in large clusters that hang from the stems. This early cultivar is very easy to grow and propagate. It is a popular pass-a-long plant because of its ease of culture. It can get 6 to 8 ft. tall if you stake it or you can cut it back and keep it 18 to 24ins. tall.

Shade to partial sun, temp 50 to 100 degrees, with staking it can get 6 to 8 ft. tall. allow to get slightly dry between watering

    So gorgeous I decided to buy a second one a few weeks after buying first. Easy grower. Very nice size and healthy plants arrived.

    Vintage beauty… I ordered ‘Lucerna’ last year & it has become a favorite cane begonia of mine. I ordered this second one so that I can plant them together. A beautiful, large leaf with small silver spots & a red underside. Will enjoy watching this one grow big & tall!

    I’ve bought a lot of begonias from Steve’s lately so my reviews will be pretty much the same for each. Every single one has been bigger, fuller, and more beautiful than I could have hoped. I am always so thrilled opening the boxes to find more plants just as nice as the last shipment. Who doesn’t love Lucerna?! I already have a pot of them from a local lady propagating from her old mother plant, but I couldn’t resist having a couple from Steve’s too. A classic that can never go out of style.
