About Begonia Society:
The American Begonia Society (ABS) was born of the Great Depression. In 1932, begonia growing, horticultural classification, and scientific study were in their adolescence. Many of today's species were undiscovered and hybrids not yet developed.
The group that emerged was called the California Begonia Society. It grew rapidly and by June 1934 changed its name to reflect a more national orientation. Now, in 1980, the American Begonia Society numbers in excess of 2,000 members around the world.
