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

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.
