Identify this begonia?

Mike_TierneyApril 16, 2011

I bought this begonia about five years ago in a hanging basket at the Missouri Botanical Garden gift shop in Saint Louis, Missouri.

It is very compact, shrubby and generally upright to about 10 inches and then it becomes more scandent. The leaves obscure the stems which are somewhat woody. The leaves are about 1.5 inches long, angel-wing shaped with a coccinea green color, faint white spots, and develop a pink blush in bright light. The flowers are pink.

I hope to post pictures as well.

I was hoping to post some pictures by following the instructions to preview the message and click on the 'Browse' button but I don't see one.

Never mind.
