SKU: A843741 Category:

The Strawberry Begonia, scientifically known as Saxifraga Stolonifera, is a delightful and unique addition to any garden or indoor plant collection. This charming perennial plant is cherished for its attractive foliage and delicate, star-shaped blossoms, which make it a beloved choice among plant enthusiasts and gardeners alike.


Best grown in evenly moist, organically rich, light, well-drained soils in part shade to full shade. Indoors, plants should be sited in bright indirect light, although some direct sun (if not intense) will promote the best reddish leaf colors. Easily propagated by rooting plantlets in soil. Hardy in Zones 6-9. Site in a protected location and provide plenty winter mulch in Zone 6.


Typical Uses:

  • Indoor Beauty: Place it in a decorative pot on your windowsill or as a hanging plant to enjoy its cascading, strawberry-like leaves and dainty white or pink flowers.
  • Ground Cover: In outdoor gardens, it’s often used as a ground cover to create a lush carpet of vibrant foliage.
  • Terrariums: Its compact size and eye-catching leaves make it a perfect addition to terrariums and miniature gardens.
  • Rock Gardens: The low-growing habit and resilience of the Strawberry Begonia make it a great choice for rock gardens and borders.


To establish your Strawberry Begonia successfully, follow these steps:

  • Soil: Plant in well-draining soil rich in organic matter. A mix of potting soil and perlite works well for potted indoor plants.
  • Light: Provide indirect sunlight or dappled shade. Avoid direct, harsh sunlight that can scorch the leaves.
  • Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not soggy. Water when the top inch of soil feels dry. Avoid waterlogged conditions.
  • Temperature: Maintain temperatures between 60-75°F (15-24°C) for optimal growth.

Care Instructions:

  • Fertilization: Feed with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half strength every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer).
  • Pruning: Trim any yellowing or damaged leaves to encourage new growth.
  • Repotting: Repot when it outgrows its container or becomes root-bound.
  • Pest Control: Keep an eye out for common houseplant pests like mealybugs or spider mites. Treat as necessary.

Special Features:

  • Strawberry-like Runners: The plant sends out runners that resemble strawberry runners, giving it its name and a unique aesthetic appeal.
  • Low Maintenance: Its robust nature and adaptability make it suitable for both novice and experienced gardeners.
  • Air Purification: Like many houseplants, the Strawberry Begonia can help improve indoor air quality by removing pollutants and increasing humidity.
