Our annual end-of-summer contest is here, come on down to the Dave's Garden County Fair!

Begonia boliviensis

San Diego, CA(Zone 10b)

This begonia has developed a nice caudex over the years. It's about 6" in diameter now and is just showing buds of new growth. Looks a lot like a Sinningia. I keep it completely dry in winter and water sparingly in summer. It flowers prolifically!

Not sure if I have the species name correct. If I've made an error, let me know?!

Very bright orange/red. Thanks!

Sun Lakes, AZ(Zone 9a)

I wish I could grow that begonia here in Phoenix. I imagine it needs more humidity than I can muster!

I am not sure Nancy. When I have tried tuberous begonias they all seem to rot. Maybe I will try another in s/h. That might work.

Austin, TX(Zone 8b)

Gorgeous flowers.
