Begonia ID Please

Hi friends! Could you please identificate this begonia?

Could it be any platanifolia hybrid?

Thank you. Regards,

Definitely looks like platanifolia or a lot of that parent in it.

It looks just like begonias we have in our office. The tag just says hybrid, but the variety is Gryphon. Ours are getting HUGE and we have only had them since about August and they are now about 2-1/2 feet tall and wide with leaves about 10" across.

It's definitely not 'Gryphon'. I would agree it's either B. platanifolia or a closely related species like B. aconitifolia.

It is called an Angel Wing Begonia
I have quite a few at my home. Have had them for years, no blooms, ever, yet it was blooming when I got it, Peach.

Hope this helps
