Pam Penick over at Digging has instituted Foliage Follow-up to Carol’s popular Garden Bloggers Bloom Day. I don’t have many house plants, and I don’t have any that are unusual, but I do like the polka dotted foliage on my angel wing begonia. And its a good thing I like the foliage, because I have gotten very few blooms. Who has advice for me?
Visit Pam and see who has interesting foliage, bark, etc. indoors and out.

With those incredible polka-dotted leaves, I don’t know that you even need blooms, Pat. Wow, they’re great!
Thanks for participating in Foliage Follow-Up!
i love your angel wing begonia, they look nice and content in your window sill
Pam – You’re right. Polka dots are as good as blooms any day. Thanks for inventing Foliage Followup.
Noel – They are content – and not very demanding.
I am not used to seeing these angel wings begonias – so when I first looked at your pic I thought it was a new type of pulmonaria lol I must make some enquiries to see where I can source some of these begonias.
I love the blooms AND the foliage. Thanks for the winter color!
This is one of my favorite begoinias Pat. A little more sunshine might encourage it to bloom. Some compost tea??
Hi Pat, it is lovely. I agree with Lisa, more sun and maybe some fertilizer, sea kelp, etc.
Leaves – The begonia does have a pulmonaria look about it.
Tinky – Thanks for the appreciation.
Lisa and Frances – I think I have always been afraid of too much for the begonia sun and over reacted; and I know I am not consistent in my fertilizing. I will attend to both.
