About ‘Sterling Moon’ Lunar Lights™ Begonia

The Sterling Moon Lunar Lights Begonia is a part shade perennial with puckered, green leaves are frosted with silver and mint-green flecking; the salmon-pink flowers play nicely with pink highlighting on new leaves.

‘Sterling Moon’ Lunar Lights™ Begonia Care

Perennial in USDA Zones 7-9. However, there is a simple solution for gardeners in Zones 7 and below: Plant this Begonia in a pot and bring it indoors for the winter. Place it in a sunny window and return it outside once the threat of frost passes in the spring.

Requires Part Sun to Shade for best results.

Water 1-2 times per week during the first growing season if planted in the ground. However, water 2-3 times per week if planted in a container.

Begonias don’t need much fertilizer to thrive. However, apply fertilizer in spring to ensure that it has all of the nutrients it needs.

‘Sterling Moon’ Lunar Lights™ Begonia Spacing Recommendations

Plant your Begonia  ~2 feet apart for a seamless planting. Space them 4+ feet apart for gaps between clumps.

    A wonderful big and healthy plant – planted in July in Georgia no less and it is doing wonderfully.

    I didn’t get the begonia I ordered. In fact it isn’t a begonia at all. I’m not sure what kind of plant it is and would love to know so I can take care of it properly.

    This review may not be fair to P by M as my issue is probably shipping related. My plants were delivered with the 3 boxes (2 plants each) standing on end and when opened, the 2 plants in each box were crammed on one end. The boxes were clearly marked not to stand them up, but I’m not sure they were packaged properly either. Needless to say they weren’t in good shape. They’ve been in the ground for over a week and I’ll be lucky if 2 of the 6 survive.

    The begonia root is large, but several of the leaves were died or dying. Some of the leaves were OK This is the first time I’ve had a problem with anything I have purchased from PBM.

  5. Becky Cook (verified owner)

    My begonia arrived in good condition and was easy to plant in the garden. The packaging maintained the 6-8 inch foliage so the plant looked like it had been purchased from a local nursery. It started blooming about 2 weeks after planting here in zone 9. My plant has considerably more red in the leaves than shown on-line. It’s too soon to evaluate hardiness or resilience (I planted in the ground).
