Need to Identify This plant

Hello Judy first I thank you for telling me what my other plant was. Now I have another that I am hoping you can identify for me. Also, I want to know why its leaves keep looking like they are burnt? Am I giving it too much light?


Your plant is an Angel Wing Begonia. I can’t see any burn marks in this picture. Please email me a picture of a leaf with a close up of the burn marks and I’ll try to figure out what is causing the problem.  Angel Wing begonias have large, “angel wing” shaped, dark green leaves, often with metallic silver specks. The underside of the plant leaf is usually a deep red. Angel Wing begonias produce hanging clusters of delicate flowers in red, white, orange, or pink. The intensity of the color of the flowers and leaves depends upon how much light the plant gets. Here’s a picture of an Angel Wing Begonia in bloom.
