I don't think any commercial growers carry them now.

I never saw those before, they are lovely. Are they Begonia semperflorens?

Yes, they are semps.The flowers can reach two inches. They are also what I have been told are called 'Frilly Dillies'.The photo is of the pink form, selfed, the flowers there are curlier but smaller than the parent's.
