Begonia foliosa var. miniata (Fuchsia Begonia) - Shrubby perennial plant with slender stems and oblong-ovate to sickle-shaped, toothed, shiny, mid-green leaves, 1" across. Produces fuchsia-like, pink to red flowers, to 1 1/4" across most of the year. Grows to about 30" tall x 18" wide. This is probably a hybrid or a selection of Begonia fuchsioides as the species actually has bright red flowers. Plant in bright shade and water regularly.  The information on this page is based on research conducted in our nursery library and from online sources as well as from observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in the nursery's garden and in other gardens that we have visited. We have also incorporated comments received from others and always appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have some additional information, particularly if this information is contrary to what we have written or includes additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing  Begonia foliosa var. miniata.
