Begonia burkillii Dark form ("var. ferruginea")

Most growers lean toward acquiring the variegated form of this species.  However, after seeing this plant in person, and growing it, I must exclaim just how much this form has going for it.  Its' base color is a deep olive green but with a lustrous sheen which offers  the perfect foil for the moonlight-silver veination.   It's a clean and simple, yet very attractive combination.

Like others of the species, this is a good and trouble-free grower.

Well established young plants in 2" pots.
