Re: Popenoe begonia

Largest leaf in that picture is about 4 inches across, Ceres.

Yes, my carolinifolia has bloomed. Kind of ordinary blooms, however. I'm going to post another picture later today of a begonia that I don't know the name of. The guy I bought it from [at a farmer's market] called it "pig's ear" but he must be the only one that calls it that because I couldn't find anything close to that with Google.

Well, this time it was there.

And for me also.   Very pretty.   What is the width of a leaf?
Jim, my carolinifolia is trying to bloom for the first time. It is taking forever. I assume you have had blooms? Is it a winter bloomer or is
  related to maturity?
BTW, Zem, our temps are predicted to be -7 tomarrow night. That is actual and with the wind that is predicted also, it will be a much colder
factor. The positive is it is going to warm up at the end of the week.
