The Begonian, full of Begonia information and photos! Take a peek at what’s in the newly released January/February issue of The Begonian!

As we are stuck laying low during this pandemic, it’s nice to dream of faraway places and adventure. Maybe a Begonia expedition to an exotic locale? We’ve got that for you in this issue with “Begonia Hunting in Vietnam – Part 1.” Join Stephen Maciejewski, Wen-ke Dong and others on an exciting 18-day trip through remote areas in search of our favorite plants.

Find out how a grower’s efforts to hybridize her begonias led her on a journey of conservation instead in “Species Conservation of Begonia thelmae.”

If you’ve been growing begonias for more than five minutes, you’ve heard the name, Irene Nuss. Read about her amusing hybridizing backstory and more about the beautiful begonias she created in “Irene Nuss: Looking Back at a Very Special Hybridizer.”

The Begonian is a bimonthly journal for all those with interests in the varied plant family of Begoniaceae. The journal is just one of the benefits enjoyed by membership in the American Begonia Society.
