Begonia montaniformis

This exceptional species is new to cultivation and as its name would indicate, covered in mountainous bumps (bullae).  It is distinctly patterned with wide silvery white striping along the largest leaf veins.  Between are olive-purple bullae which fade to a more silvery-green with age.  This is a slower growing species, found growing on limestone slopes in Vietnam.
