I purchased Proven Selections, Lemon-a-Peel for the first time last year and just loved it. It grew very quickly and had an amazing amount of continuous blossoms throughout the summer and also Summerwings Begonia - Dark Elegance and I was equally satisfied with its performance. I am presently inquiring at Kendor Nurseries where I purchased these to see if they have them in and they said that with the colder weather that we've been having in Qualicum Beach, B.C. that it would be at least another 3 weeks before they get them in. Thank you for providing such wonderful plants! If there are any other plants that you think I might enjoy growing, please let me know which ones you suggest I try out. Sincerely, Jean D. Pawluk
