Hey Jackie - I'm surely no expert on begonias, but could it be one of the Angel Wing begonias.

Yep it's an Angelwing Begonia. I just haven't a clue as to the variety. I have the same exact one. It is growing like crazy. When it gets leggy just cut it back and put the cutting in some water and you will have a new plant in no time. I got a cutting from my mother on easter and the thing is huge now. I am going to have to cut it back, but I think I will wait for spring.

I have had Angel Wing reach 8' tall, and the bloom panicles were easily 12" long. But they must be supported early, and care must be taken not to break the crisp stems.

Thanks everyone for your help. I think that it's an angel wing, but it's driving me nuts trying to figure out just which one it is, lol. That pic is about 4 months old and you are right, it has gotten really big. Right now I have it in a hanging basket, so I guess I am suppose to put it in a bucket and stake it, right? I would love to see one of these babies get 8 feet tall. I have a Bubbles angelwing that is about 4 feet tall and I thought I was doing good with it, grin. Just goes to show that even us old timers can learn a thing or two.

There are lots of them out there! Angelwings are also sometimes referred to as cane type begonias.
Hope this helps
