Begonia? Or no-Gonia?

Hey all,

I've been sent here from the Name That Plant! forum. Was told this looked like a type of begonia so I'm looking for help here. I have no idea WHAT this beautiful thing is that I stole off my mother's porch :P

Any ideas? Is it a begonia? If so, what kind? The leaves are velvety and very richly colored.

Yes it is a begonia - a trailing begonia. Maybe 'Withlacoochee'.

RE: Begonia? Or no-Gonia?

Hcmcdole, THAANK YOOU! Looks just like a Withlacoochee...

Would've saved a lot of time if I had jumped on here to begin with.

Mine collapsed in the heat last year. Be sure that yours gets no direct sun. Shade only. What a gorgeous plant! Good luck!
