Begonias (genus Begonia) are flowering perennial herbs, shrubs or climbing plants with fleshy leaves and stems.
These leaves are often magnificently colored and textured. Begonia flowers range in color from the usual pinks and whites to scarlet red, salmon/orange and yellow. The name begonia honors the French botanist, Michel Begon.
