Polka Dot Begonia is a tropical flowering plant from the Begoniaceae family. In the wild, this plant grows in the tropical rainforests of South America, the Eastern Himalayas, the mountainous regions of India, the Malay Archipelago, and the island of Sri Lanka.
Begonia maculate is one of the biggest types of Begonias. It has a hard, straight stem and forms a semi-shrub about 3.5 feet (1 meter) high. The beautiful green leaves have a distinct polka-dot pattern and feel oily to the touch. They are elongated and round in shape, with a red underside. Begonia maculata produces clusters of more than ten white or pink flowers with bright yellow stamens.
