What is This Plant?

This plant belongs to a friend of mine and she is having trouble finding out what it is. It is thriving very well, but she just doesn't know what it is called.

It looks very much like an angel wing begonia. Has the picture been enlarged? That is what is kinda throwing me off. They are a houseplant and that looks like a bush.

This is a speckled begonnia (common name, elephant's ear or angel's wings). They usually get blossoms on them once a year.

We call them angel's wings, they have beautiful pink blossoms. Love diffused light, and will start from cuttings if you get a branch broken off. Ours is from my grandparent's home, over 30 years ago. My mom keeps starting new ones when branches break off, so it just keeps growing.

This is a type of begonia, sometimes called an angel wing begonia. This plant is a rapid grower. In one year mine grew from a cutting to a plant that was a yard high and two yards in diameter. Its shape was gorgeous; I kept it on a tall plant stand and the branches draped in three different ways: up, out, and down. Mine had beautiful large hanging clusters of pink flowers and it bloomed almost continuously.

We called the angel wing begonias(not sure of spelling. They grow fast and big. You can cut them down they will bush out. They get pretty pink heart shape clusters of flowers. I loved mine lost it thru moves. Really easy to get starts, just cut put in water
