Terra Nova offers sneak peek of 'peacock tail' begonia

Terra Nova Nurseries announced a sneak peek of a new variety named Begonia Dancing Peacock. This exotic begonia has fan-shaped leaves majestically resembling a peacock’s tail.

Dancing Peacock has a large, bushy and shrubby mounding habit, and it thrives in shade. The variety has wildly colored, fanciful palmate leaves of rose-purple, silver, mint, and olive-green that stand out in large containers or summer shade borders. It fills containers quickly and was bred to flourish in the garden or as a houseplant.

This brilliantly colored begonia has hardiness zones of 8-11, a foliage height of 24”, foliage spread of 28”. From plug to a 4”-pot, the finish time is between 4-6 weeks. Fertilization is recommended at 150-200 PPM.

Terra Nova Nurseries has created a “Plant Profile” page and “Grower Recipe” specific to this new variety so growers can learn about growing habit, plant characteristics, fertilization recommendations, water requirements, and other insights provided by the breeding team. These documents can be viewed and downloaded for printing at: Growers can contact their Terra Nova Nurseries’ representatives or email the sales team at
