Plants of the new Begonia have not been observed under all

possible environmental conditions and cultural practices. The

The following traits have been repeatedly observed and are determined to be the unique characteristics of ‘BKBEWPF’. These characteristics in combination distinguish ‘BKBEWPF’ as a new and distinct Begonia plant;
