Roaming around Lowe's that other day and came upon their sale of houseplants; and took several photos of plants that I've not seen before. Here's one that had no tag with very pretty and unusual leaves.

Do you have a photo from a distance to better show the growth habit? It looks like a Begonia Rex to my eyes: http://garden.org/plants/searc...

Betsy, I forgot to say ... start a new thread for each photo and I bet someone will recognize the plants in your photos from Lowes!
