: I am searching for a weeping begonia, which is supposed to be a houseplant, at least here in Tennessee. Hass anyone out there ever heard of one? My motives aree altruistic. Thank you, Carolyn
I've never heard of a weeping begonia, but there are begonias that weep. Guess this sounds weird! Anyway, there is a begonia that weeps called 'angel wing begonia'. Is this what you are referring to? Maybe you are looking for tuberous begonias. They weep and are potted up in the spring for growing in hanging baskets and come in many colors. The tubers are stored in the winter in a cool place.
Here's a site that might be helpful.
You can also search at www.google.com and put the name in quotes like this: "angel wing begonia". You can click on 'Images' and often get pictures too.
Hope this helps,
