New begonia-Ikon

laura1(9aTpa,FL)May 10, 2009

I was at my favorite locally owned nursery when I spotted this beauty! I tried to take a picture but my camera DIED! (must know that I'm looking for a replacement-hehe).

We'll have to make due with with the link photos but they don't show the soft fuzzy leaves...beautiful blush pink flowers. I love it! Can I grow it?? That remains to be seen.

Here is a link that might be useful: Ikon blush

Very nice pics, Laura1. What type of camera did you get?

I had Ikon last year and it didn't grow very well for me in a pot in dappled shade. Not sure what I did wrong, but it sure is lovely. I may try again this year if I can find it.

I'll have to keep that one in mind...I may need to buy a new camera myself soon. Canon has always been a favourite.
Thanks!
