According to Wikipedia, the begonia is a genus of perennial flowering plants in the family Begoniaceae. The genus contains more than 2,000 different plant species. Begonias are native to moist subtropical and tropical climates. Some species are commonly grown indoors as ornamental houseplants in cooler climates. Some species are cultivated outside in summertime for their bright colorful flowers, which have sepals but no petals.
