Rhizomatous species from southern China with excellent foliage colored light red on the underside and olive-buff green on top with a ring of silver-white spots just in from the margin.  This makes a fine clump to 20" tall in a container, more than holding its own with just foliage but the late season white flowers are welcome frosting on this particular Begonia cake.  Judging on where this was collected, it seems reasonable to expect this to be growable here in the zone 8 Puget Sound with winter mulch.  Something new for sure.
