Dear Ms. Mcgary,

My main project now is breeding ornamentals, including Begonia. The 
Pacific Bulb Society page has several species. Do you know which 
nurseries or who to contact acquire them? I am most interested in ones 
in Eupetalum (e.g., /B. veitchii/, etc.) and Knesebeckia (i.e., 
/B.// falciloba/).While I am not working with American Begonia Society, 
but am with Ornamental Germplasm Center at The Ohio State University.

I did make crosses of /B. grandis/ with a few tuberous species this 
year and would like to try to cross with others that I currently do not
