Walter Dworkin hybrids

Amsterdam, NY(Zone 5a)

Walter is trying to find some of his begonias to reestablish his breeding program. There are more, but this is the starting list (he may have found some by now):
Angel Baby
Angel Eyes
Apple Blossom
Dede Dinah
Dream Lover
Earth Angel
Johnny B. Goode
Johny Angel
Mack the Knife
Midnight Fantasy
Party Doll
Party Lights
Rockin Robin
Satin Doll
Smarty Pants
Splish Splash
Stagger Lee
Sugar Moon
Sweet Caroline
Winged Majesty

Powder Springs, GA(Zone 7b)

Let us know how your search goes. As new begonia hybrids are created each year, I bet a lot of oldies are lost except the keepers that appeals to a wider audience such as Lucerna, Sophie, Irene, etc. Most folks are going to weed out the plain green ones and poor performers (maybe they are great looking but if the genes are weak it may be herculean to keep them alive).
