Each upright leaf is comprised of many long, oval, jagged-edged leaflets that are silver with green veins, but have varying blushes of purple or pink. In the coolness of fall and winter the leaves tend to be much more pink. In very early spring small salmon to coral-pink...

(Berseba Begonia, Hiemalis Begonia)

Popular and everblooming, hiemalis begonias are shade-loving tender perennials that make superb bedding and container plants. These hybrids have arisen from several South American species, such as the winter-blooming Begonia socotrana and the beautifully flowered species that comprise tuberous begonias. So, they bloom prolifically in winter and their flowers are doubled like tuberous begonias but smaller. These may be white, yellow, red, orange or pink, depending on the cultivar. Their glossy, succulent...

(Begonia, Black Mamba Begonia)

Both the foliage and flowers of ‘Black Mamba’ stand out, though it is most admired as a foliage plant. Its velvety, star-shaped leaves are nearly black with contrasting burgundy undersides, and in winter it produces a lovely display of pink flowers. This Terra Nova introduction was bred by Brad Thompson in 1993 as a cross between 'Peggy Frost' and 'Dr. Cleo.' It is a surprisingly vigorous, rhizomatous selection best-suited for container culture.

Each large leaf is star-like in appearance with...

(Boston Cherries 'n Chocolate Rex Begonia, Rex Begonia)

This group, one of many in the begonia family, is prized for its astounding leaves, which amply earn the designation “Rex” (King). The leaves vary wildly in shape from whorled or curled like a snail to broad and much-divided. They vary even more wildly in color and patterning. These begonias produce sparse sprays of small pink or white flowers but the leaves upstage and conceal the blooms.

Modern Rex begonias are complex hybrids that derive from crosses between the Southeast Asian native Begonia...

It is cup-shaped and wavy edged, being glossy dark green above and a bronze-burgundy on the underside. In between each leaf vein is an oval area that is thin and transluscent, and is light green when viewed in the burgundy leaf underside. Ivory-pink flowers...
