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!
