Wax Begonias

What Type of Begonia


Jimsypoo added on November 7, 2015 | Answered

What type of begonia is in the attached photo, and how do I store it to use again next year? I bought the plant a few months ago and have kept in a pot. It has been flowering constantly for months and is only starting to go over now (November). Is it a begonia and, if so, what type is it? Jim Pirie

This is a Wax Begonia.
The Begonia Genus contains nearly 2000 different plant species so identification of the cultivator that you have would be very difficult.

Here is a link that will help you with wintering and care.
