I'm a BIG fan of Author and Photographer Karen Platt of of the UK. Her books on foliage are incredible. Please check out her book 'Black Magic and Purple Passion' which has some great photos of dark leaved Begonias.
In addition to this book I have three more of her foliage books, 'Emeralds, 'Silver Lining', and 'Gold Fever'.

Rehka Morris had created the SOS -Save Our Species program! Now hurry and email Rehka and adopt your favorite species!.
The Save Our Species program of the American Begonia Society was created by Rekha Morris to encourage its members to adopt one or more species, keep it / them growing in cultivation, and, by propagation, share them with others so that we do not lose species begonias altogether.
So many species including begonia species are no longer to be found in the wild, and the loss continues at an alarmingly rapid rate due to human depredation or natural catastrophes such as landslides. You can find more information and Rehka's email to join on the ABS website.
