Saxifraga stolonifera 'Strawberry Begonia'
Easy to care for, Strawberry Begonias light bright, indirect light and to be kept moderately moist at all times. Watering from the bottom is a good method to prevent water from harming the soft leaves.
The Strawberry Begonia Plant, or Strawberry Geranium as it is sometimes called, is neither a Begonia nor a Geranium, but rather a member of the Saxifrage family. It does have bluish-green fuzzy leaves like those of a Begonia and it does spread by sending out “stolen” or “runners” like a strawberry plant does; but a Strawberry Begonia Plant is really an evergreen native to Asia and a close relative of the Piggyback Plant. A Strawberry Begonia Plant produces a lovely white flower with pointed petals and a bright yellow center. Like a strawberry plant, new babies develop on a Strawberry Begonia Plant at the ends of each of the “stolen.”
