Begonia foliosa var. miniata
“Fuchsia Flowered Begonia”

Begonia foliosa var. miniata "Fuchsia FLowered Begonia"


A Begonia dressed in Fuchsia’s clothing! This delicately-leaved Begonia caught my eye for its neat shrub-like form, ferny foliage & proliferance of sweet fuchsia-esque flowers. Generally tops-out at about 3’x2’, slightly taller than wide & like most Begonias, needs shade & regular water. This cutie can flower most of the year where it thrives & though I think it would be marvelous in the shade garden, it would work just as well in a pot. Hardy around the Bay, but you can bring it in before frost if you’re not in a Begonia-hardy zone. From South America.
