Roden Show 2007

Roden Show 2007 (Begonia)

My best foilage Begonia this year. Not a patch on the others in the show, but not too bad for the 1st year growing foilage Begonias!

Wow~~~ you said best does produce bloom as well, right?
Those leaves are absolutely beautiful.

I do believe that the foilage Begonias do produce flowers, but this one hasn't flowered since i have had it. I understand that these Begonias are grown for their foilage, one of the books i have been reading on them suggests taking off any flowers to allow all the plants energies into the leaves. This particular plant i purchased off ebay, and it's called "Morning Dew", one of my favourites!

Thanks for the info, Mark. I asked you about the Angel Wing and you named it a "foliage" begonia also. I have had blooms on the AW and they are quite beautiful, not spectacular like the fibrous and tuberous...but rather like angels tears..they are teardrop like, and crystaline pink... Thanks for the reply.
