Dregei begonia goes with the common name dwarf wild begonia, maple-leaved begonia, and grape-leaf begonia. An incredible option for indoor plantation, Begonia dregei bonsai originates in South Africa. A part of the Begoniaceae family, the plant has a swollen base or caudex. The characteristic green begonia maple leaves are small with sharp tips creating dense foliage. Winter-dormant Begonia dregei caudex is covered with white flowers during the blooming season that starts from Spring and continues till fall. This plant in its natural habitat grows to a height of 19-39 inches and between 8 to 10 inches as a bonsai. It can grow vertically upright or sprawl in bright filtered sun exposure.
