Thick-Stemmed Begonias

B. 'Boomer'The thick-stemmed types are not as widely grown but come in various forms. They all have very thick stems. Most thick-stemmed types don't branch much but send up new growth from the base. They also show off the thick stems because they drop their lower leaves and usually only have leaves on the tips. These can be very attractive and are definitely unusual if you're looking for something different to grow.
