We are a local organization for Begonia enthusiasts in the San Francisco Bay Area. The ABSSF is a branch of the American Begonia Society - www.begonias.org and enjoy the benefits of this national organization. We are celebrating our 83rd year in 2023 and serve the entire San Francisco Bay Area. We have dedicated our Chapter to our long time benefactor, Carol Notaras, for her commitment to ABS and our local chapter over the many years of her participation. Carol has contributed many hours and funds to our continued success. She continues to give us guidance on the cultivation and identification of the genus Begoniacea.
If you live in the SF Bay Area and want to learn about all kinds of begonias, get access to lots of great plants at incredible prices, and how to grow them, this is the group to check out!
