Star Begonia / B. heracleifolia var. pyramidalis hort. (Ribbed Longitudinally Petioles)


This particular Begonia heracleifolia is known for the large Mexican rhizomatous species. Firstly identified in 1830 in few Begonia Societies and hence many varieties and hybrids been discovered and created - however they all are generally labelled as a Star Begonia with a general Begonia heracleifolia species name.


The Main Characteristics here I want to emphasise is more of the Glossy Green Foliage which is slightly more grander in appearance than Begonia heracleifolia Cham. & Schltdl. as that one has more yellow tones. 

The other main strong characteristics is the furry strong ribbed appearance on the leaf petioles - unlike most Star Begonia, this characteristic is very unique.
