I'm not much into cultivar names but it looks like pics of 'Thai beauty.' Whatever it is, it's so pretty! Love your pretty Begonia too!

It reminds me of a Strap Leaf or Lance Leaf variety called 'Pink Gem':

Lance-leaf Caladium (Caladium 'Pink Gem')

Lin we cross posted.
Looking at the pics I think I'd still have to go with Thai Beauty. Pink Gem is nice tho too !

Here's Pink Gem from a few years ago, so you can compare.
