Begonia ‘Steve’s Leaves Yellow Jacket’

(9 customer reviews)

$19.99

Begonia ‘Steve’s Leaves Yellow Jacket’ Won Best New Introduction at the SW region Begonia Society show in 2019. It was also on the cover of the American Begonia society magazine in July of 2019. We believe this is the first yellow-flowered rex begonia created and the yellow flowers are what make this begonia so special. The oval leaves are green and red with silver and red markings but this plant loves to bloom in the spring and fall and it blooms profusely with large clusters of yellow flowers with red backs and ovaries that glow against the foliage. It loves to show off displaying its flowers high above the leaves for everyone to see. Like many rex hybrids, the colors in the leaves tend to vary depending on season. Colors tend to dull in the heat of summer but will become more vibrant again as the weather cools.

Hybridizer Darren Heppel 2020

Shade to partial shade, temp. 50 to 90 degrees, 6 to 8in. tall, allow getting fairly dry between watering.

Family: Begoniaceae

***Note:  This plant is shipped in a 3.5 – 4 inch pot.  By purchasing this plant, you are agreeing to the terms and conditions of this sale.  For more information, please see the “What to Expect” tab under the “About Us” menu as well as the FAQs.

    Such a beautiful plant, fuzzy stems with large multicolored leaves. The leaves have a splotches of red and silver duo-chrome that glitter in the light. My plant has not flowered yet but I already love it.

    Great plant- arrived large and healthy. It grows steadily and the sheen over the colorful leaves is great. So far it’s been an easy rex hybrid compared to the the others I grow.

    Beautiful and colorful plant, I can’t wait to see the flowers.

    Definitely a beautiful plant. The pictures really do not do any justice to its beauty. The colors are vibrant, the sheen on the leaves, the stems, the patterns… I fell in love when I opened my package. I cannot wait for it to grow some more and flower in the fall. I will be buying another one soon!!

    Wow! Such a beautiful plant. I can’t get over the colors on the leaves and speckles of silver. The leaves look painted. Oh and can’t forget about those furry red stems perfect!

    This is an update to my previous review dated 06/12/2020. The plant has grown and new leaves have sprouted, but as of yesterday 7/9/2020 it has a couple of blooms. Again, it is such a beautiful plant and vibrant plant. Very happy and satisfied with my purchase.

    This is SUCH a pretty begonia – I was excited to see it available, as It’s been on my wishlist since I first saw pics on instagram a while back. It arrived in perfect condition, and those fuzzy stems and spotted leaves are just gorgeous. Just as good (or better!) in person, can’t wait to watch it grow up.

    This is SUCH a pretty begonia – I was excited to see it available, as It’s been on my wishlist since I first saw pics on instagram a while back. It arrived in perfect condition, and those fuzzy stems and spotted leaves are just gorgeous. Even the backs of the leaves with the read veins are lovely! Just as good (or better!) in person, can’t wait to watch it grow up.

    This is a WOW plant. More emphasis should be paid to the leaves and overall structure of the plant. It is a gorgeous specimen plant even without blooms. The flowers make it an out of this world plant for your collection. Mine has grown strongly and steadily and now has its first real cluster of flowers….magnificent! I can only imagine once mature how truly spectacular this plant will be. It’s one of my favorites and I have 450 houseplants so it takes a lot to stand out in the crowd.
