Tallest canes, which ones aren't Coralina de Lucerna?[coccinea]
Was once astounded by an 8' cane with a lot of blooms. The leaves were lobed and had stripe-ish silver markings [ a lot like a Sophie Cecile].
This one bloomed in the spring, with large pale-ish coral umbels. The calyxes[?] were quite long.
It was full and fully leaved, all the way down.
Please, Does anyone have ideas on what it could be? I have poked around on the web quite a bit to find it, but huge canes seem unfashionable, and hard to find much on.
I'm hoping this wasn't just Coralina in good growing condtions. It was spectacular and architectural.
What are the parts of a begonia flower called? is the long part in the back of the petals, an ovary or calyx? Are there any diagrams ?
I'm hoping someone might have ideas on what is was, and where I could find one. Does anyone else like the giants?
Thank you, florey
