Begonia 'Red Bull' is a spectacular small leaved Rex Begonia. This hybrid was created by Antoon Hoefnagels of The Netherlands. The leaves are a bright metallic red/pink with a dark area at the point of petiole attachment. The leaf margin is wavy and will sometimes be a little darker than the rest of the leaf. It has a full, compact growth habit. Like many rex hybrids, the colors in the leaves tend to vary depending on season. Colors tend to dull in the heat of summer but will become more vibrant again as the weather cools.
