Excellent.  Dark, silvery-gray leaves with thick veins and wide bands of near-black and red-reverse.  Small angel-wing begonia that we highly recommend.  Just lovely.

Absolutely Shines

I'm not sure why more people don't have this plant. About every begonia seller offers it for a reason. If you collect begonias and aren't a species purist, you should get this plant; It's the rare combination of easy and breathtaking. It does have cold-water sensitivity to it's leaves (I am the bad type of begonia grower who invariably 'tests' this at some point), but otherwise it pays you back tenfold for the barest amount of care.

This plant is new to me, and from the moment I unwrapped it, the leaves are stunning. I can see why it is highly recommended. Thank you Violet Barn for introducing me to new and different kinds of plants

Looks like a REX & is easy!

The metallic reflectivity of a Rex without the sensitivity. It grows like a regular houseplant! - with a little pinching it is a handsome specimen in no time. It is a 'mallet' type so doesn't send up canes -- it roots easily to make another plant after a couple years when it looks 'old'. This 'Looking Glass' look-alike doesn't get enormous and always gets complements.
