Just got an order from Greg Sytch and the plants are beautiful and huge. Thanks for the heads up db.

This is Talynn Flaherty, Kit Jeans Mounger, Julie Vanderwilt, Arabian Sunset and Island Magic.

I found Arabian Sunset to be a pm magnet, but the application of powdered sulfur really helped. You will love Julie. I got Island Magic last year and I think it will grow into its own this summer. I strongly recommend Greg's Confederate Pride when he has one available.
He really does have the best plants, hands down, for the price.

Thanks Debi and thanks db for the heads up on the pm, I'll be on the lookout. It is rare to get plants that are about 12" tall and wide for those prices. Talynn Flaherty was the only small plant and I think that is the nature of that one, the name even sounds dainty. Island Magic, with the 10" leaves, looks like it will be a bruiser.

I am afraid to look at Confederat Pride, I may HAVE to have it. LOL

You really need confederate pride, raindancer, ebony, dolly, foxy lady, yuzura, black jack... Basically every one that he grows. Best value anywhere.

Do you look on the international begonia database and the Texas begonia society one (Dallas, Houston, Austin - some city...)

I have searched the ABS Astro Chapter in Houston, TX. Greg had mentioned that was a good site.
