I was at the Biltmore Estate today and saw this beautiful plant inside their conservatory. It was next to some Orchids, but am not sure that information is helpful. What is this plant? My Dad was not sure but said he would love to have this in his garden!

Thank you!

Are you sure those flowers were attached to those leaves? It looks like begonia flowers, philodendron leaves and a lily poking up in one corner.

It's very pretty. The foliage may be hidden by the other plants. I agree it looks like a begonia, maybe a Rieger begonia?

I agree

Thank you all for the replies! The leaves may have been from another plant as they are all packed in close together. It does seems like it is a Rieger begonia. This is the first I have heard of that but I do hope to add that to my garden one day! :)

Thank you again!

Yes the leaves with the lighter green center stripe in the first pic appear to be from Philodendron 'Brasil'.
