A little begonia.............

elkay_gwNovember 17, 2012

So I stopped in the greenhouse yesterday, just to look, and it was mostly filled with poinsettias and Norfolk Island Pines.

I thought this little guy was cute and since I don't have any begonias, thought I'd buy it. It's a rex begonia, right? Can't seem to find what kind. Anyone know? Newer leaves are reddish and all leaves have white dots.

It's only 4.5 inches tall right now and the largest leaf is 2 x 2.5".

Oh nice! Cant help you but it does look young . You could try posting it in the Begonia forum.

It looks like a rhizomatous, but I don't know if that automatically means it's a rex. I gave up on the pursuit of Begonia ID'ing beyond type. There are too many for me to want to tackle them.

From the leaf shaped it might be B. Art Hodes which I've had & loved, but don't recall it having white spots like that, the leaves were solid green on the several I've had. Nice whatever it is.

I'd try the Begonia forum as well.
