Beautiful! How cute. It is a Palm Leaf Begonia (Begonia thiemei), also named Begonia macdougallii

RE: Begonia ? Thiemel

This is a species rhizomatous, once called macdougalli but now is correctly ID'd as B. theimei. It can get quite large. In my Tampa Bay yard, B. theimei can fill a 14" bowl and I grow it outdoors all year.
