I find begonias quite fascinating, with their many variations of leaves, stem lengths and blooms. Here are two different blooms of the tuberous begonia (begonia tuberhybrida). These are Picotee begonias, which means the petals are two-tone, with the edge of the petal a much darker color than the rest of it. Remember to click on each photo for a larger view. Enjoy!

    I never knew what begonias were. Don’t know my flowers very well. Those are lovely!

      There are so many types of begonias, it’s hard to recognize them all since the blooms and plant size can look so different. I usually recognize them by their leaves, which seem to have a common spotted pattern and shape.

  2. I love begonias too and plant them every year. 🙂
