the most beautiful plant i have ever purchased. my nursery tagged it as a rhizo "los angeles." but, i couldn't find it on the begonia society website, or anywhere, for that matter, with that name. does anyone know which one it is? it's simply lovely, and it makes me smile. :) ty!

do you think you could get a clearer shot of the foliage? the current shot is backlit and i can't see too many details/colors.


RE: who is she? :))

sure! i think she liked the spotlight as well! how's that, ming? :)
the other really beautiful feature that i should mention, is the leaf, itself. the underside is a shiny maroon color and yet the top side is like forest green has a suede-like feel as well. thanks so much ming! this is my first collectable begonia - i have had fairy wings, and hardy ones, non-stops, but these are truly remarkable plants. i can't wait to stumble across my second one. :))

It's close to being 'Black Velvet'. Try this link.

Oh, thanks, Butch! I think that puts a name on one of my NOids! Couldn't resist it, even without a name.
