Interesting Notes about Begonia:

This hybrid is a blend of features to result in a begonia with large flowers and robust habit.  The flowers are in shades of pink or red and the waxy leaves come in bronze or green.  They prefer partial sun, and as long as there is adequate water will grow in full sun.  In full shade they may produce fewer flowers, but are still a power house of color.
