identify a rex?

ritam(z5 NY)April 26, 2005

I have a rex that is large with chocolate edges and center and medium green between with darker green at veins. I am entering it in a flower show in June and would like to have the correct name. I remember 'Chocolate' being part of the name but it is not 'Cherries and Chocolate'. Does any of this sound familiar? I have been all over the internet and haven't seen it yet. If anyone would care to email me I could send you a scan of the leaf.

Thanks,

Rita

B. 'Chocolate Man' perhaps?

Ming,
That's not it. I wish I could post a picture. I have had this for so long and I just can't remember the name. Are you aware of any webs sites that post pictures of unusual rexes (although, I have been through most of them)?

These are great websites. Thanks so much. I'd been to a few of them already. I would say that mine most closely resembles Fireworks with the edges having more brown with the rose color.
Would either of you object to receiving an email from me with a picture of the leaf? If you'd rather not, thanks to both of you for your help. I will try to label it Rex begonia Fireworks and hope the judges let it pass.
