Recently, I have developed a strong affinity for rex begonias. These are the kind of houseplant begonias that have fancy leaves. I’ve looked everywhere for them here on Maui, but haven’t found them. I wanted some so bad I got some by mail order. They were small, but healthy. And they are taking a LONG time to get any bigger.
Yesterday I stopped at Home Depot to wander the garden department, and what did I see? Rex begonias! Cool!
I didn’t end up buying them, because even though I love rex begonias right now, I have limited space on my lanai, so I’m being a little picky about which varieties I buy.
