Thank you for your help,

this is one of those trailing/scandent begonias. it probably has white flowers and blooms in late winter/spring. I can think of convolvulacea as a possibility, but try the link to the amerian begonia society at bottom.

Thanks Ming!

I think that might be the one. I know it's not the most beautiful begonia, but I like it just the same.

We always hear that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but I think it may be in the heart. I find myself admiring some begonias and not caring all that much for others, but then perhaps I get one I hadn't liked especially and it does well, and then at some point I discover I really really like it. Or maybe it's one that just struggles but keeps on fighting and wins my heart (at which point my extra admiration leads to better care, so maybe it can stop fighting so hard and thrive!) Sure sign of someone with too many plants I suppose, but since I'm sure I don't have enough--oh, well!
