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.
