I have a few begonias and a couple of tags have gone missing. I bought this Begonia about 4 years ago and can't find the label anywhere ... possibly dispersed by squirrels as a bunch of my orchid labels were. I had a Begonia 'Torch' and I'm wondering if this is it? I'm so not good at comparing photo's for identifying so I thought I'd see if anyone here recognizes this particular begonia.

This is an old picture, the plant stays outside on my deck and it's dark so I will get a better photo tomorrow along with a pic of another one that the tag seems to have gone missing.

Probably B. 'Torch'.

Here is mine for example.

That's it! Thanks so much! I still have one other that I need to try and remember the name of and will get a picture later and post to see if anyone recognizes it.

Thanks again!

I agree it is definitely Torch. I just got some cuttings of this plant and am rooting them in water.
