Similar pointed leaf shape to "Red Dragon" but different colouring, obviously. Gr8 looking plant.

Isn't it a beauty, Mark? In the past 4 days, it has produced another 3 leaves!

Certainly is a beauty. Amazing how these Begonias have such colourful leaves.

After looking at the pic of the heuchera, you see a similarity of leaf shape in this beg and the heuch? all this genetic crossing and genetic alchemy...a weeee bit scary?

Well, Lori, a possible family link between begonias and heucheras? Must explore this. I've got a great heuchera shopping list lying here, for next year, lol!

Our "Wizard of Oz" begonias are all doing well and growing up nicely. In my pics they were in 2" pots, but have now graduated to 4" ones.
