I believe that's the one that grows in SF all over the place--I've even seen it as a hedge. I've been told by some that the correct name for that is actually B. foliosa var. foliosa. I have one that I got from Carlos Rendon (our vine guru) which he gave me as a cutting of an 8 ft , huge plant, "climbing" his fence. That one has bigger flowers, very striking, very, very red. I really like it. He insists the correct name for that is B. foliosa var. miniata. I assume he's right. Anyway, I have access to both, although my plant of the red one is small still. It needs a sunnier spot than where I have it.
    Nice! No, I was just wondering because I have a plant that was labeled Begonia fuschioides, and I have a few rooted cuttings going so I was thinking about offering them up soon. Though it seems like there is some contestment over what the species actually is. . .

    Dexenthes,

    Does yours have white, pink, or red flowers?

    I'll email you the detailed response that I just wrote, and post the question to the Begonia Facebook group. I don't mean to clutter up what should be a fun thread with nonsense about naming.
