Begonia Bonita Shea

Plant No. 4 I am evaluating for Athens Select. It arrived, with the other 3, on May 13, and this is what I entered into my record then: "Very attractive, healthy-looking foliage and cute, small white flowers; brown roots. If the root system recovers, this can be a spectacularly beautiful plant." Well, I haven't looked at its roots since then, but the plant is now at least 3 times the size it was when it arrived and it is indeed spectacularly beautiful. And, believe me, that is high praise from someone who is not necessarily a begonia fan. (But that could change . . . .! :-))
