I use to have Chocolate Soldier a few years ago and I lost it. So I purchased another one from two different places. Some how it doesn’t look the same to me. The Chocolate soldier I had didn’t have any pink on it. May be its the light it gets? Any way here are a few pictures.

Angel Wing Begonia Alma Parker

Angel Wing Begonia Alma Parker

This begonia is a tall growing cane begonia and needs to be pinched back or it will grow tall and leggy. I believe I purchased this one at the SWBGT in San Antonio. It Blooms pink flowers and has large bronze leaves splashed with silver spots.

This Angel Wing Begonia blooms pink flowers and has medium green leaves with silver/white spots. It looks like it will be a compact grower.

I purchased this begonia in San Antonio this year at The Southwest Begonia get together. The blooms are a peach/pink color and the leaves are light green with silver/white spots. It is a medium size compact grower.

Shrub type begonia Brazilian Lady

Brazilian Lady is a shrub type begonia. It has medium leaves and would grow well in a hanging basket. As you can see in the picture it blooms small sprays of white flowers. The leaves are a velvety texture brown/bronze with olive green veins.

What a beautiful flower! It looks like a huge snowflake. This is another Angel Wing I purchased in; I believe in Ft Worth  at another South West Begonia get together. I don’t know what colors the Angel Wing begonias I purchase at these show are going to bloom. I just love Angel Wing Begonias regardless of the color they bloom.

This begonia has very large leaves and the flowers are pink. It grows rather tall and leggy so you have to pinch it back. As you can see in the picture it has beautiful dark bronze leaves with a red backing and the blooms on it are huge!

I purchased this Angel Wing in Dallas at The Southwest begonia get together in 2011. It hasn’t bloomed yet; we did have a very hot summer and a drought last year and my Angel wing begonias struggled to stay alive. I am hoping it will bloom this year.

 

Angel Wing Begonia Crystal White

Teen Angel has beautiful silver leaves and bright green ribs. It almost looks like a rex begonia but it is much easier to grow.
