Flower Power

It is now officially March, and while those allergies are still dormant you should enjoy the beautiful color-blend of tropical Begonias. Every month (except for December) the California Horticultural Society hosts a plant expert and a presentation of plants. This month it's Terra Nova Nurseries' resident plant guru -- and the original "hortiholic" -- Dan Heims, a veteran of The Martha Stewart Show. His topic, Bonkers for Begonia's, brings together an epic selection of hybrid varieties while also giving you some tips on how to care for its showy flowers in different landscape settings. Where else would you learn about a plant whose names range from Tiger Paws and Pin Up, to Irene Nuss, Looking Glass, and Ambassador Rose? Heims will also share some of the rarest species of begonias, from 2-inch-tall African plants to 7-foot-tall Brazilian giants.
