Begonia ‘Erythrophylla’ (Beefsteak Begonia)
Begonia Erythrophylla (Beefsteak Begonia) is a rare begonia found in tropical and sub-tropical areas. Not usually sold in plant stores, the beefsteak begonia is a real collector's item. The contrast in colors between the front and back of leaves is truly spectacular. Beefsteak Begonia has shiny leaves, that are dark green on one side and deep burgundy red underneath. This begonia is an early hybrid dating back to the 1840s. It was produced by crossing B. hydrocolylifolia X B. maculata.
