Bee Joke of the Day

What's a bees favorite flower?

A bee-goina!

Semperflorens Begonias - probably the most widely grown begonia and in some parts of the country is called "wax type" because of the waxy look to the leaves.

These begonias are grown mostly as bedding plants and annuals but are really a perennial shrub type of begonia in areas that don't freeze (they don't overwinter here). All have shiny leaves, green or bronze, flowers come in single and double and are ever-blooming in every shade of red, pink and white.
