Bigonia in a garden in the plains, India

Begonia, a genus of perennial flowering plants of Begoniaceae family has 1400 species! The ones I saw blooming in July in Nainital (Kumaon Himalayas) are much bigger and succulent than the kinds that grow in gardens in the plains of North India – to be specific – the ones that grow in Lucknow, in spring.
