I remember when Pastor and Mrs Leisy moved to New York and he gave me a hosta that he called his "baby."  It was huge and really beautiful.  This is my "baby" begonia.  I bought it in Snohomish the summer we left there in 2008.  He goes outside every summer and inside for the winter.  He will loose a lot of his leaves in the house, but as you can see, he recovers quite well.  I had to put him in a new pot this year as he outgrew the last one, and he really took off after that.
 The plant is 2' across and I measured one leave and it was 12" long by 8" wide.  I am going to hate seeing the leaves fall throughout the winter, but I know that it will be back in it's glory come next summer.
