The Blooming Begonias in My Greenhouse

There are so many beautiful plants blooming in my greenhouse.

I have a large collection of begonias, and it's expanding more every year. The genus begonia contains about 1500 different plant species and hundreds of hybrids. They are native to tropical and subtropical climates, so many specimens are kept indoors as ornamental houseplants. I often bring specimens inside my Winter House when I entertain. Rhizomatous begonias come in an array of sizes, colors, and textures, and can be small or large, smooth or veiny, with bold accents of red, copper and silver or subtle shades of green - I’m certain there’s at least one begonia that would inspire and captivate any gardener.
