Correct name for this plant is Begonia conchifolia variety rubrimacula. The ‘Zip’ begonia is a rhizomous begonia. The foliage has medium-sized, smooth, unincised leaves. The masses of blooms are white and bloom winter through to spring. It prefers shaded light but can take some sun in winter. Pinching tips and pruning outer stems in the growing season gives a bushier plant, good for hanging baskets. Remove dead foliage to prevent disease.
