This begonia blooms peach/orange flowers. The leaves are light green with white spots. I purchased this one in Dallas at one of the Southwest begonia get togethers. Very pretty flowers and easy to grow.

What an unusual flower! I was told the flower of this cactus attracted flies! The flower also sticks! Smells like something died. But if you can tolerate the smell it is a gorgeous flower! As you can see in this picture the flies love it!

Angel Wing Begonia Maurice Amy

Maurice Amy is a mallet type Angel Wing begonia as you can see in the picture it has purple/mauve leaves with lots of purple/mauve spots. I Water this begonia when the soil is almost dry. Bring inside in the winter; grow it outside on a patio or under the trees in the spring and summer. I fertilize every time I water and every once in a while I use plain water
