Tuberous Begonias and Amaryllis

Posted by Picasa
The tuberous begonias and Amaryllis at Southern Homes and Gardens in Wetumpka were beautiful. I would have had to have one of those pink Amaryllis except for 2 reasons: the high price and how could I get it home without breaking or bending the flower stalk.
I have tried several times to grow tuberous begonias, but without success. I guess the only way to make that happen is to grow them in a greenhouse in the winter, or have them shipped in from someplace cooler. And if they are shipped in, they are going to start downhill as soon as they get a sniff of Alabama weather. Even our springs are too hot and humid for tuberous begonias, at least the types pictured here.
