It's very pretty. If it is Pinafore, then it is one of the parents to
Torch which is also known as Pinafore Sport.

Torch blooms all the time too, always in flower. It takes after Pinafore
in that regard. I love your Pinafore.

#1 is beautiful. Would love to have that baby. If you send that picture to Logees they will identify it for you I feel sure. I have found them very helpful when you have purchased the plants from them. Please post the name when you find out.

I thought I bought it at Logees, but the tag does not say Logees, I may have bought it from Greenhouse works. If you can't find it dmail me.

I do not know what it is, except for "angel" or cane type... but I have one and is the easiest thing in the world to root. Just break off a stem below a joint and stick it in water. Not too much water because they put out hormones to help them root, or so I read on another site. Mine is rooting along with a wandering jew and they look gorgeous together.

It looks like it might be 'My Special Angel'. It looks a lot like mine.

You may want to send the picture to the Begonia Society and they will ID it for you.
I did that with mine and they were very nice about doing it.

Never had it identified but it's identical to one I drowned last winter. I'm still hurting. I'd love to have a cutting now. Let me know if you can help me. When I bought it it was just referred to as a "vintage angel wing." I like the way the dots are charmingly irregularly spaced and embedded throughout the leaf rather than embossed on the leaf as in nellie moser.
lovey plant!
