Corallina de lucerne

jebfarmFebruary 23, 2013

Hello all - does anyone have first hand experience with this begonia? I am interested in finding out if this variety has flowers that are fragrant - the pictures and descriptions on the net of Corallina match a begonia that I grew 30 or more years ago, when I was a teenager - and what I remember most about this begonia was that when the temperature and humidity were right it smelled kind of like roses and raspberries. I never knew the name of the plant that I had, or if I did I've forgotten it. If anyone knows Corallina has a pleasant fragrance let me know - thanks.

Hi! I had it before, but do not remember a scent. that doesn't mean I am not remembering wrongly. Maybe someone else will step in with another vote.
