Large, heart-shaped leaves add a lush, tropical texture in moist, shady gardens. Leaves have prominent red veins underneath and are especially showy if backlit by the sun. The flower is soft rose-pink, translucent and somewhat frosted, like satin glass. Plants are hardy as far north as New York City if given adequate protection. This 3′ tall Begonia increases rapidly by forming small bulblets on the stems that drop in fall and root around the base.
