Pellionia pulchra - Watermelon BegoniaRegular price $19.00
Let's get things straight first, this plant is not a begonia! But it is sometimes commonly referred to as a 'Watermelon Begonia'. Its growing habit is that of a shingling plant and if grown in shade will happily cover a fence or wall. It is also a great ground cover. Grown in a pot they eventually hang as the stems grow long but start off quite erect in growth.
