Big Leaf Begonia

I posted this new Begonia on the Begonia Forum, and also decided to post it here.

I purchased a pack of seeds from Parks Seeds for the Green leaf variety, and will post pictures later, if they do well. I have also started Dragon Wing Begonia seeds, which did well last year.

I will include a link from the '08 Penn State Garden Trials. Scroll down to number 39 or 40 to see the pictures that impressed me of the Big Leaf Begonia. I will try them in pots.

RE: Big Leaf Begonia

Actually, the series is called "Big", and the Green Leaf or Bronze leaf designation refers to the leaf color. The plant itself is big and robust, "big" isn't referring just to the leaf. It is a very nice series with great landscape performance. I live a couple of miles from the landisville trials that you linked to - and the Big begonias did look nice. Here is a link to the actual breeder site:
