This compact growing medium leaved rhizomatous is one of the few begonias created by renowned Australian hybridizer Ross Bolwell that has managed to find its way to the US. The leaves vary in color with differing light conditions from season to season. It can be any color from red to nearly black but overall is a dark red/bronze most of the time. It is slightly similar to Begonia 'Angel Glow', another Bolwell hybrid, but has larger flatter leaves in a roughly star shape with nice consistent spirals and generally much darker in color. Lovely pink flowers in spring. Its compact form also makes it an ideal windowsill or indoor plant. Fairly easy to grow but has not been tested for cold hardiness.
