I finally learned to use the camera and took pictures of the rex begonias that had no name tags, and I'd love to label them if I could get the names.
Here's the first. Thanks ahead for help with the names. Annette

Begonia ID help please????
Nice selection of rexes. Some are easily ID'ed such as Pink Diamonds and Fireworks, some of the others are harder to ID. The first one looks similar to Peace. The second one looks like one of the Constellation series (maybe Libra or Capricorn).
I would refer you to two web sites to start your search: Rex Begonias LTD has many but a lot of the names are probably of their own making and Lyndon Lyon.
http://www.lyndonlyon.com/ (Look at companion plants)
Thanks for the reference websites.

Cem - that is a nice collection you have. They are all so pretty and look so healthy.
Thanks. I've had to repot 1 but so far everything seems to be surviving fine.
Cem that is a beautiful plant. I wish there was a chance to have met you. I am the one that had the birthday that Saturday. I was sitting with the judges up front. There were alot of members there then. Will see you at the next meeting.
Looking_glass, it was a great meeting. Looking forward to the next one. Happy Belated Birthday. ;0)
