A lovely rare species begonia hailing from Brazil brought to horticulture in 1961. Elliptical leaves of olive green sporting a chartreuse line down the middle of each leaf. The leaves of B. listada are also graced with soft velvety hairs and deep red underside. Grown mostly for its foliage, white flowers occasionally appear throughout the season. Plant in bright light to part sun, cascading growth habit to 16" - 18" make it a wonderful container or hanging plant.
