The New England Begonia Revolution will take place in Natick, MA Crowne Plaza Hotel July 29-August 2 and the Rhode Island Begonia Society will host two bus tours from the convention at the Botanical Center. Greenhouse 4 has been transformed into a begonia extravaganza. One bed is planted with the most familiar begonias…the wax begonias, also called fibrous rooted, in shades of pink and white. Also on display are sun-loving begonias, shade lovers from Borneo and Brazil and a very hairy begonia from the jungles of Viet Nam. The old fashioned ‘Angel Wing’ and some very new hybrids create additional interest.
