Begonia Lansbergeae belongs to a genus of perennial flowering plants in the begonia family (Begoniaceae).
The genus contains more than 1,800 different plant species. The Begonias are native to moist subtropical and tropical climates.
The botanical illustration was first published in 1893 in L'Illustration Horticole, one of the great Belgian horticultural periodicals of the 1800s.
L'Illustration Horticole, published from 1854 to 1896, featured a monthly review of noteworthy plants for the greenhouse and garden. Included were descriptions, illustrations, history, and advice on cultivating the plants.
In 1869 Jean Linden took over publication of the review (Linden is best known for his Iconography of Orchids).
This print is particularly noteworthy for the richness of the coloring, resulting from the chromolithographic process used to produce it.
This chromolithograph botanical print was prepared by Pieter de Pannemaeker, a noted 19th century Belgium artist and lithographer.
