Your plant is called an Angel Wing Begonia. Angel Wing Begonias produce hanging clusters of flowers in red, white, orange, or pink. The intensity of the color of the flowers and leaves depends upon how much light the plant is getting. Angel Wing Begonias are beautiful, easy- care, flowering plants that brighten your home all year. Angel Wing Begonias are very easy to propagate and make great gifts. These plants are considered poisonous and should be kept away from pets and children. Read more about common houseplants that are poisonous in my book Don’t Feed Me To Your Cat! A Guide to Poisonous Houseplants.

Here’s a picture of an Angel Wing Begonia in bloom.
