Re: plant ID...palm begonia

Donna, talking about Palm like plant.....I recently saw a picture of a  "palm 
begonia".  The foliage stood up tall from the plant, palmate shaped  large 
leaves on top of what seemed like tall standing stalks.  It said it  was a 
begonia, common name "Palm Begonia".  I didn't write down the  botanical, 
unfortunately,  and of course have forgotten by now.  I've  asked a few people that are 
into Begonias, but no one seems to know about this  plant.  Anyone grow it, 
or know about it??

There is  some kind of palm looking plant that does survive here. A few
blocks away  they are growing it in a half whiskey barrel. See the darn thing
die off  and remain outside with no additional protection and come back to
life each  summer. . amazing, wish I knew what it was.... But the house  looks
abandoned and never see anyone there.
