One of my favorite begonias. So far it hasn't gotten leggy. A very balanced easy grower. Leaf petioles and undersides are a beautiful red.
My plant (see pic) was purchased as 'Tita~~~Curly'. But it is believed to be Midnight Magic. Until further notice.

One of the easiest rex-cultorum varieties that I grow. B. 'Midnight MAgic' is a rex hybrid using an unknown rex X B. 'Manuel' and hybridized by O'Reilly in California, 1987.
