OK, so I got no responses so being a resourceful gardener I hit the streets of Austin with my GPS. After several disappointing nurseries I hit pay dirt at "The Great Outdoors" on South Congress. They had a small shaded area with lots of named begonias of several types. I spent 60 something dollars and got alot for it. I will post a list of what I got later for those that may be interested.

Here is what I got and what I paid:

Catalina--Hanging Basket--$15.99
Passing Storm--6" Pot--$10.99
Raspberry Crush--4" Pot--$4.99
Tar Baby--4" Pot--$4.99
Purple Snow--4" Pot--$4.99
Flamingo Snow--4" Pot--$4.99
Uncle Remus--4" Pot--$4.99

I am very pleased with my purchase and cannot wait for them to grow. I will definitely be going back to "The Great Outdoors" for more and any other garden needs I may have.
