RE: Dragon wing begonias

Momma loves begonias of all sorts.  I don't suppose you have any photos of
your giant (nothing to rival that in Ohio) begonias?

Subject: [CHAT] Dragon wing begonias

Last year there was some talk about "dragon wing" begonias. We have six 
or seven of them in the front patio. Some in hanging baskets, some in 
pots, some affixed to trees. They are all blooming now, spectacularly. 
But there are other angel wings that are even more spectacular and are 
in full bloom.

We just re-potted one that is 4 feet tall, has leaves 8 inches by 4 
inches, and blooms in huge clusters of pale pink flowers. Oh, yeah, and 
the leaves are dark gray-green with fantastic silver blotches.

Another, 4-1/2 feet tall, has smaller leaves, olive green in color, but 
enormous sprays of bright red flowers--and I mean enormous. At least 
two handsful per bunch. And the best part is that they will last for 
months and months and months.
