What kind of a begonia is this?
Look what I scored when I visited my favorite nursery in SF! It is so beautiful and delicate. Even the shop owner couldn’t identify the cultivar, but know that it is a Rex Begonia of some kind. What do you think? I’m so in love! Silvery on top and red on the back. #Begonia #RexBegonia #WhatPlantIsThis #HappyPlants #PlantsMakePeopleHappy #NewPlants #CalvinaAsksGreg
@calvina it’s a Begonia Rex.
@KikiGoldblatt thx Kristy. Upon more digging, I found out that it is called a Silver Limbo. It is within the Rex Begonia family.

BTW, which website is this that you’re using?
I use a LeafSnap app
Woah 🤩
@PlantMompy that’s what I said too when I saw it.
I just got one yesterday too!!!!
@Marthamaywho92 no way! You got a Silver Limbo too?
@calvina yes!! I was so excited to find it!
@Marthamaywho92 wow! I’ve never seen one before, which is why I picked it up. It’s gorgeous! Have fun with it.
