Notes:

This plant is 26″ H. The leaves are 12″w X 17″long. The flower stalks are 48″ H. and the blooms are white. It is located in N. Florida and I started it from a leaf some years ago. It was growing around a water feature in a greenhouse at a nursery in Tallahassee. They gave me the leaf but could not ID the begonia, nor did they have the begonia for sale — it had been there so long no one knew anything about it. It freezes in cold winters and returns in spring.

    Check out Begonia nelumbiifolia and see if you have a match. Common names lily pad begonia. Best wishes! https://www.google.com/search?q=Begonia+nelumbiifolia&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiMie-ywKDOAhWD2yYKHaYnCJ8QiR4IfA&biw=1711&bih=833
