Re: ID Help

Jim, I'm not a begonia specialist any more - that phase of my life was some 30
years ago - but from my old reference books I would think you have a 
Begonia macdougalii.  The other begonia with that leaf pattern is 
B. luxurians, but in my illustration those leaflets appear narrower and
more folded.  I'm sure someone else will be more up-to-date.

It's a begonia in a hanging basket that I got at a nursery that's going 
out of business. No name; only "begonia." It has a bloom spike, but the 
flowers aren't open yet. Anyone have any ideas? The leaf is about 16 
inches across.
