There are at least 10,000 hybrids and cultivars recorded in this genus with a massive 1400 species! The showy flowers and often attractively marked leaves encourage breeders to keep on hybridizing these multi-faceted plants.

Most begonias are frost tender and the often large flowers come in many shades of white, pink, scarlet and yellow. In most species the fruit is a winged capsule containing lots of minute seeds. The foliage can be spectacular with silver-green, red, purple, yellow splashes and veins.

The genus and common name honours Michel B├ęgon, a French patron of botany.
