About the Family

Begonia Family

In the 1860's a number of tuberous begonias were discovered high in the forests of Bolivia and Peru, in the Andes mountains of South America. The genus Begonia has over 1,500 species. Here we only make mention of the 'tuberous' begonias that have been subdivided into various groups (depending on their flower form) each of which contains several hybrids which are in general only identified by their color. Next to bedding begonias ('Semperflorens') tuberous begonias are probably the best-known and most widely grown and enjoyed by the average gardener around the world.
