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.  This information is based on research conducted about this plant in our nursery library and from reliable online sources. We also take into consideration observations of it in our nursery of crops, as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens we have visited. We will incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if it includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Begonia foliosa var. miniata.
