I got this from my old-lady gardening friend/neighbour. I saw this one somewhere else and it was about 7 feet high. I'm growing in a pot. What exactly is this Begonia?

It looks like an 'Angel Wing' Begonia.

Or could it be Begonia aconitifolia which is a parent of the Angel Wings. B. aconitifolia has pendant pale pink blooms too
