Begonia 'Cracklin' Rosie' is an upright cane-like begonia. The leaves are large and bronze color when young. They mature to a dark green with many silver dots. The back of the leaf is red and this shows up as the leaves have a natural curl to them. The hybridizer Walter Dworkin named this cultivar after Neil Diamond's song. This hybrid does not bloom very often but when it does the pink flowers are in large clusters.
