Do you have some gorgeous Begonias? Pls share pics!

It's been about a month since the mass beheadings of my cane Begonias. Now, everybody is getting happy & regrowing again. What's better than Begonias? MORE Begonias! NOID unless name given.

Using cuttings "as annuals" but will take cuttings again to save inside for winter & be house plants. I think Begonias, like a few other similar plants, offer the best of both, part-time house plant, part-time outside, enhancing the landscape. Some of the mama plants get put in the ground, but most just get their pots moved outside for summer.

This is a cutting:

This is where it was taken, regrowing a new stem.

Those are gorgeous! TY for sharing them!

Here are some I saw recently at a mom'n'pop store. The last 2 are ones that came home with me! Not an easy decision!





As well as wanting more plants, I'm dying to visit this place again to ask how old this Begonia might be. I was completely wallowing in Wow when I was there, and failed to ask several other questions that seem beyond obvious, and extremely important, in hindsight.

Cinta, you've got some real beauties there! I used to have a couple of Gryphon but lost them to the cold when they got left outdoors one winter. The one in your third photo with the pretty yellow bloom looks like a Hybrid Tuberous Begonia (Begonia x tuberhybrida)

First photo in your second set reminds me of Dragon Wing Begonia (Begonia Dragon Wingยฎ Red)

The last Rex Begonia is gorgeous as well!

This is the one I picked up recently,'

This is funny. I had some small cutting over the winter and I found this little Terrarium at the thrift store. It is from the 60s because it was in a box with a picture Jeannie and said "I Dream Of Jeannie Terrarium containers. I guess they were marketing it as her coming out of the bottle.

Well anyway the plant has done so good over the winter the plant is growing out of the opening at the top. Hilarious! It is going to make a nice show on the patio this year.

How fun, and pretty!!

I've snapped many stems off of my 2 new ones to help decorate, in the ground. The one on the chair needs a hanging pot soon.

G'day all-- most of my begonias are grown in this enclosed patio, straight off from the kitchen, so easy to hybridise

You have a lovely collection. I just love the cane begonias. I gave all of mine away, and now I regret it. I'll have to get some more. Sighing!

Here's the "Y" stump area I showed before.

What was the tall stem before, to the right, has been snapped & stuck as a new cutting:
