This begonia of the Weilbachia section, comes from Mexico. Many begonias lovers grow it ! Its foliage is pustulate, hence its name (the blade is scattered with small, obtuse and rounded protuberances). The blade color is very varied and you see on the picture several ones from one seedling, without any hybridization. It is a creeping begonia very ornamental and it grows very well on a mossy column.
