Polka dot begonia is undoubtedly one of the most gorgeous species of indoor plants because of silver spotted leaves and red undersides. It is rumored that Louboutin created his trademark shoe to mimic the undersides of the Begonia maculata.
Begonia maculata is one of the most exciting begonias. The undersides of its leaves are a dark red, and the upper side is olive green with silver dots. During the flowering season (spring to autumn) Begonia maculata produces white flowers in a cluster on a single flower stem. It is relatively fast growing. The plant is native to Brazil.
