I have always favored Begonias. As a house plant as well as an outside hanging Plant. I have been growing different Begonias for 45 years and my mother grew them before me. I think that this is one of the most beautiful Plants that I have. I love the color and the way the Blooms hang down on long stems. This one is a winner!
