Begonia - Fire Flush / Begonia 'Bettina Rothschild'


Begonia - Fire Flush also known as Begonia 'Bettina Rothschild' is a Rex Begonia Hybrid and was introduced in 1866 into cultivation in France as an ornamental plant. The foliage are in green covered with fine red hairy velvet like features - it may also have some strong curly features at the foliage center of the petiole.

Updates on 18 Nov
(It's been 2 months and I wanted to follow-up on the progress of this begonia)

I had found this one also goes with another name:
Begonia 'Bettina Rothschild'
I believe there some begonias that have similar or same appearance with different names.

The new formed leaves appears to be like brilliant velvet red.
It does so well in more brighter shade area compared to fully shaded area.
I believe this one is a little bit more of a sun lover.

Earlier, when I purchased it, it has somehow a folded in formation.
Now, it is more showy and graceful.
It has more like a heart leaf shape, just love the tiny red hair surface on the foliage that gives the red velvet with the green background formation.
