Red-Leafed Begonia

heucheraOctober 3, 2009

Hello, I know nothing about begonias, but was taken with this plant and snatched it up--a beautiful begonia with shiny solid red leaves, chosen from amid what must have been a seed mix germinated by the grower. No name came with it. It has small pink blooms. Does anyone know what kind of begonia it is? I have pictures but am new to the forum and I don't know how to post them. I planted it with eucalyptus in a pot and they are beautiful together.

There are many red leaf begonias. A picture is worth a thousand words. Can you give more detail? Size, shape, texture, other prominent markings if you can't post a picture would help.
