Patterned

Begonia beleaf "Asian Tundra", or Begonia Rex, is a highly decorative and popular houseplant, with beautiful large silvery patterned leaves and purple veins that radiate from the centre.

Begonias are a vast group of plants of nearly 2,000 species that hybridize freely, making them very difficult to classify. Species that originate on different continents, and that are relatively distantly related are even able to hybridize, and this feature has led to the development of very many interesting decorative plant varieties. Many ornamental houseplants are often classified as Begonia rex, although they are often hybrids of different species and are put into the "Rex group".

Begonia produce one of the smallest types of seeds in the world, and often have a succulent stem.
