Begonia type

I started these begonia's from seed and it's the only packet that I can't find. (I save them for the growing season so I can go back for reference). I don't know what type of begonia this is. It just keeps growing and there aren't any flowers. It looks like it's starting to seed out at the very top. I do remember the packet saying they were good for containers or hanging baskets and I've got about 12-15 of them, plus many I gave away.

RE: Begonia type

I don't see any begonias in your picture but maybe the picture is too small to make out a lot of detail. Can you zoom in on a leaf?

RE: Begonia type

Are the stems square?

RE: Begonia type

Definitely not a begonia. Looks like catnip, otherwise probably another kind of mint.

RE: Begonia type

I thought it looked Plectranthus-ish... but Heidi never came back.
