Very nice begonias! Love that you can grow passing storm out of a terrarium (it seems to be happiest in a terrarium in our hot/dry climate)

Oppp! Same shot. Sorry.

Passing Storm loves it here. I leave all my begonias outside except for the winter months. I guess begonias love it when you can't step outside without getting wet from our high humidy!

Just beautiful, Daisy! I especially love the dark color of Passion Storm. I also like Cowardly Lion, Lalomae, Marmaduke, and Little Brother Montgomery.

I think one of your begonias is B. 'Passing Storm' Not Passion
A friend of mine in Australia has the world check list with 16, 000 entries. I will check with him.
I had a begonia that I thought was Sblover for years. Found out it was named after Ziesenhenne's wifes family Selover. Ziesenhenne was the worlds most famous begonia man. Our Begonia group in Santa Barbara is named after him.

Begoniaboy,

You are right. I mistyped the name. I've made the correction.

Did you buy your crassicaulis from GHW? The crassicaulis I got from them looked exactly like that but it isn't really crassicaulis. It is a heavy duty begonia. Now I just call it the monster or sprawler. Before it got frost bit two years ago it probably sprawled between 6 and 8 foot long.

Here it was 3 years ago (a year before the frost damage) on a hot deck in full sun. As long as it got watered every day, it laughed at its conditions.

hcmcdole,

Corrected to say that I researched my records and I did not get this from Taylor Green Houses. Carolineafolia came from TGH. I got B. Crassicaulis from a Dave's Trader.

When that picture was taken it was in full sun from about 9 in the morning until 6 or 7 PM. The only shelter it got was from the top of the baker's rack.

I now have most of my bigger begonias in full sun up to 2 PM. Needless to say after I moved them outdoors, they did get burned but they've all responded very nice since then.

Here is a sample of some in full sun now.


I wish I had a full size crassicaulis to show you (mine is pretty small). Here is a link to what crassicaulis looks like.

Thank you! I sent a piece of the unknown rhizo type to begoniacrazii. Maybe she can ID it. *crossing fingers and toes.

Johanna,

There is no picture of crassicaulis on this thread (but the link has one). I have a feeling you are talking about the oxalis embedded in one of my pots.

Here the begonias I had at one time and lost. I would be interested in trading cuttings if anyone has these in their collection.

Thanks so much!

Hey... how are you. I have lost all my begonias. Only one I have left is the Elk Horn. I'm propagating it like crazy to offer it in trade for ones I lost. I don't mind buying cuttings or trading for anything you might have extras of.

I just mustered up the nerve to clean out my green house these past few days with the help of my 16 year old Grandson and my Boy Friend. It was sad to see all those empty pots go to compost. I knew what lived in those and how much they were worth. :-(

Thanks a bunch,

All the begonias are cut back for the winter, but remind me in the spring. No need for trade or for buying.
