The Begonian - March-April 2012 issue features article about OPGC

March 5, 2012

A brief article describing some of the work on the begonia collection at the OPGC has been published in The Begonian, the quarterly magazine of the American Begonia Society (ABS). Author Steven Haba describes the importance of the collection in the OPGC's programs and provides an overview of the challenges and opportunities presented by germplasm work in this very large genus. The original collection of begonias established at the OPGC was generated with assistance and support of the ABS. Future work with this genus will also rely on input and suggestions from members of this group of passionate begonia growers and collectors.
