| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“Begonia is an extensive genus of succulent-stemmed herbaceous plants, order Begoniaceæ, with fleshy oblique leaves of various colors, and showy unisexual flowers, the whole perianth colored. They readily hybridize, and many fine varieties have been raised from the tuberous-rooted kinds. From the shape of their leaves they have been called elephant’s ear. Almost all the plants of the order are tropical."—(Charles Leonard-Stuart, 1911)
