Begonia nelumbifolia - Lily-pad Begonia

One of the most delicate flowers I have seen. This plant is native to India and the tropics and is found wild in Central and South America. The flowers drop and according to my neighbour who gave this plant to me, the flowers can be put into the soil and new plants will grow from them. These are flowers to remind us to stay calm at mid-week and never to let ourselves down in the face of adversity.
