I know this is a type of Begonia—but it is an Angel Wing or a Dragon Wing? Any begonia lovers out there who can help?

Not an angel wing. Their leaves are green with silver spots and shaped like wings. My grandmother was excellent at growing them and I loved them – the silver spots glowed like mercury. This, too, is a lovely flower, though. I wish I had inherited my grandmother’s “green thumb.” Your photographs often bring her to mind.

Thank you for commenting on the Begonia. Do you know what type of Begonia it is?
