Begonias have long been popular greenhouse plants in temperate countries and are also used in some gardens, especially those with slightly cooler temperatures. Many hybrids have been developed, some grown primarily for their ornamental foliage, others for their attractive flowers. Among the latter group, which come mostly from tropical American species, are B. x semperflorens, which has small pink or white flowers, both double and single, and B. popenoei, on which the panicles of white flowers rise upright above the leaves. Among the foliage Begonias, B. rex is one of the best known, along with B. x erythrophylla, which has dark green leaves that are purple and red underneath, and B. heracleifolia, with striking green-and-bronze star-shaped leaves. All Begonias prefer moist but well-drained soil and shady conditions, though some will grow in filtered shade. Propagation is by stem or root cuttings or by division of rhizomes. Begonia escargot: Large whorled leaves in chocolate, champagne, silver and pewter tones. Needs high humidity and very even temperatures so that a large terrarium would make the perfect home.

The Elatior begonia is a small shrub, typically reaching heights of 2-5 ft (0.61-1.52 m). It is grown primarily for its lush foliage, which can range from bright green to deep maroon, often with shades and stripes of both colors in between. Its striking foliage is complemented by a profusion of colorful blossoms. Depending on cultivars, they can bloom in shades of pink, off-white, yellow-orange, red, and a range from vinous to crimson. They can flower from early spring to late summer, depending on weather and other environmental factors.

The Elatior begonia is fairly easy to care for in USDA Zone 9-11 regions, though in colder climates these plants can easily be grown in containers and overwintered inside when temperatures dip too low. When planting in the ground, be sure to select an area with ample sun and moist, well-drained soil. For container-grown plants, a potting mix with a good balance of moisture permeability, drainage, and aeration is best. In both cases, regular water is essential, and a little bit of pruning helps encourage new growth. In shadier areas, the Elatior begonia should be planted in a semi-shaded spot and watered frequently.

With the right level of care and attention, the classic Elatior begonia can be an excellent and eye-catching addition to your garden!
