Last year I purchased a beautiful begonia from a local nursery. Unfortunatly, it didn't have it's marker. The nursery owner told me it was "Antique Rose". This ID does not match any photos I have been able to find online. As I recall, it was more expensive that the regular tuberous begonias that I purchased. Which makes me think it may be a newer variety. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated, as I would love to have more of them. The same nursery did not have them this spring. I have been unable to locate this variey again. If I had a name, perhaps I could mailorder. Thank you for any help you could offer.
Here is the photo from last summer.

Thank you for the suggestion, Karen! Only problem with that one is it is the exact opposite coloration. Mine is rose with a creamish edge. I do so appreciate the suggestion! That is another beauty!

No guess here, but it's beautiful!

I love that planter, too. And what do you have in the birdbath? Such a beautiful grouping!

That looks like a type of Rieger begonia to me. Not sure which one.

Why don't you try sending your photo to this nursery and ask if they might know what it is. They sell several varieties of Begonias and they're in WI. Smiling

Unless, of course, it's the nursery you got your plant from! Hilarious!
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.
