Family: Begoniaceae
Origin: New Guinea
Small shrub 2-5 ftSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterPink flowersOrnamental foliage

Its large, metallic-looking leaves sport bright-pink variegation that demands attention. Each leaf has a glossy, bronze-green background, with pink streaks that almost look painted on.

It likes bright light, but not much direct sun, which may burn the leaves. Like most Begonias, it prefers moist, fertile soil that is well-draining.
