March/April 1990

B. dipetala (dye-pet-al-ah) was first discovered in Bombay, India in 1826 by H. H. Johnstone, and first described by Graham in 1828. It was introduced accidentally into the U.S. as B. 'Mrs. W.S. Kimball' in 1913. It is in section Haagea and has 30 chromosomes.




November/December 1990 

This is a pitch for a begonia that is seldom seen or mentioned in the literature. Yet it is a beauty, easy to grow , and easy to reproduce. A cane, its flowers although large are not produced in the overwhelming masses of the more popular canes. This is a modest beauty; it does not shout, "See me!"
