Looks familiar… Pamela Breitberg 1 year ago Native in subtropical regions the Begonia, which I’ve always known as an annual, can easily grow large enough to be considered a small shrub. I hadn’t realized this until this morning when I researched this graceful bloom this morning. It was one of the multitude of beauties in the Bonnet House courtyard. Up north in the U.S. it is used as a summer annual or a houseplant; so it makes sense to me that I was unaware it could be a shrub in Florida’s climate. Copyright 2022 Pamela Breitberg The unopened flowers of the Begonia appear so delicate and enticing creating their own attention. Copyright 2022 Pamela Breitberg There are over 2000 varieties of Begonias. This one has touched my heart.
