One of my favorite stories from childhood is "The Bluebird", I was fascinated that the children looked everywhere for the Bluebird of Happiness only to come home and find it in their own backyard;)
The large double is the male (usually sterile) and the smaller single is the female flower.If you want to produce a large double flower, nip off the smaller single as soon as it is produced. You'll get competition-sized blooms. The single is always produced behind the double and you'll see it there quite early in the development of the blossom.Doug
It may not be a mutant but the colar is absolutely stunning.
I didn't know that, Doug. Thank you.I love that orange/yellow color whether double or single.
Thanks Doug. I've never had a begonia like this before. This one has been ugly all summer long until these two flowers showed up. I'll try to keep it alive this winter and see what happens next year. I like the color too Zoey & anon kind of like a sunset.
