Begonia Virtual Vote | October Winners

The October 2020 Begonia Virtual Vote is the sixth competition where members of the Melbourne Begonia Society have an opportunity to vote for the begonia they like best. This month, members were asked to vote for plants in two different categories: Foliage and Flowering.

The winning plants for the foliage and flowering categories went to Lynne Johnston for B. Cathedral which tied with B. Cleopatra (Kaye Jenvey) (Flowers) category and for the foliage category the winner was Janeen Randle with B. Grey Ghost.

The Magic of Begonias

Here are two examples of the magical charm that begonias can bring – there are many varieties from Black Magic to White Magic.

  • Do they hold mysterious supernatural powers?
  • No, but their growers are wise and worship their plants to make them grow and good enough to show.

Stay tuned for the next exciting virtual begonia show, happening soon. The results and all exhibits will be unveiled after the ‘Members Only’ October Virtual Vote competition. We’ll then take you on a magical mystery tour and that’s an inivitation.
