Re: Re: Holiday Shopping/ Rex Begonia

Those Rex Begonias have been one of the hot items at local greenhouses the
past 2 yrs.  They are cheap enough to use them as a fancy annual so I
planted some in the ground with the shade plants like hosta. They grow rathe
quickly, add a lot of color and texture, they propagate easily.  You could
have enough to sell from your little starts before you know it.
I also put my Silver Squill (Ledebouria) in the ground during summer than
pot them back up for the house in winter.  Right now they are toatally
covered with yet-to-open flower scapes.
