I'm trying to identify my Begonia. I think it's a Lana. The leaves are almost identical, but the flowers do not look like the ones in this pic. Should I be trying to match them also, or just stick to leaves to identify the plant? This is my 1st post, my 1st day, my 1st Begonia! I have had her for over 10 years. pelephant
