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.

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.

it seems this question has generated interest for several years. The reason there is so much confusion and disagreement is because there are several Begonia plants that are called Angel Leaf and even the one called trout spotted begonia (BEGONIA maculata) as someone suggest is many times called an Angel Leaf but it seems to me the Trout spotted begonia has more narrow leaves and larger "spots".

The best answer is that your plant is in the Angel Leaf begonia family.

It's an angel wing begonia. the flowers grow between two of the leaves and they appear to be angel wings around the flowers.
There is probably a latin name for it but I don't know what it is.

This plant is called Begonia Carollina de Lucerna. They are a hardy plant with beautiful heart shaped leaves. They will also flower in the right conditions with pink, red or white small clusters of flowers. They are easy to care for when watered once or twice a month. Where there is room to grow, the plant will grow very tall and broad.
