Begonia U012 (Symbegonia U012)

This holy grail Begonia has only recently become broadly available.  It is a shrub like Begonia with magenta edges and a metallic purple leaf center.  The leaves are rather thin and don’t take well to drying out, but so far it has not been difficult to propagate or grow.  It is native to New Guinea where it grows in shaded areas close to water.
