DanaRicard,

Welcome! to All Things Plants from me too! I agree with Christine that you should edit and delete your phone number from your above post. To be safe, it's never a good idea to post personal information like address, phone number, e-mail address etc. on a public on-line forum where anyone can gain access to it.

Regarding Angel Wing Begonia's ... there are many different varieties and I googled and found a few places that sell them; I've also posted links to our recommendations page so that you can read the recommendations from other members who've purchased from these particular vendors:

My favorite source for angel wing begonias is Glass House Works. They have a really nice, huge selection and their prices are pretty good. Some are marked down right now, too.

www.glasshouseworks.com Look in Tropical and House plants under B. The selection starts at the bottom of the first page and there are several pages of different cultivars.

(usually I agree all along with Ursula, but I must admit I've had a couple of really lousy, expensive plants from Logee's)

Ah, yes! I had forgotten about Glasshouse Works. I bought from them some years ago and liked their plants very much!

Hi & welcome!

It's not unusual to find various cane-type Begonias with the annuals in the spring. Owner-operated stores are more likely to have the prettier, more unusual ones.

DanaRickard, I just saw your post about the Angel Wing Begonia. I would imagine that since you posted that you wanted an Angel Wing Begonia back in October 2015 -either you have one by now or you have given up. They are very easy to root in water and then planted in soil once rooted. I have a few that I rooted and am getting ready to root my Dragon Wing Begonia. If you still haven't gotten an Angel Wing Begonia, perhaps I could share a rooted cutting with you.

The OP posted only once and has not been back in all this time. Let's assume they have found the plant. Thumbs up
Sure would be nice if they'd come back and show some photos.
