Begonia ‘Blushing Beauty’ is a new Steve’s Leaves begonia hybrid. It is a cross between a rex cultivar and a rhizomatous species. The leaves are large and oval shaped. The leaf blade is silver and covered with a pink blush along the leaf margin is a green band that is mottled and spotted with silver markings. The flowers are pink. This makes a large mound and is a fast grower. Like many rex hybrids, the colors in the leaves tend to vary depending on season. Colors tend to dull in the heat of summer but will become more vibrant again as the weather cools.
