Begonia ‘Curly Fireflush’ is an outstanding spiral leafed rex begonia. The leaves are deep green with a maroon marking in the center and along the edge of the leaf margin. What really stands out on this cultivar is the thick covering of red hairs on the leaf surface and petiole. These red hairs give the leaf a velvet-like texture. The light pink flowers are said to be fragrant.
Shade to partial shade, temp. 45 to 95 degrees, 10 to 15 ins. tall, allow getting slightly dry between watering
