I need a begonia ID please


I know someone out there in blogland will be able to tell me what type of begonia this is and I thank you in advance.

This picture was just taken this afternoon of the begonia that I have. It grows up to 3' tall, as it gets leggy when I don't clip it, and is filled with lots of sweetly scented white blooms.

I have the exact same one in my garden. I believe its name is "Begonia odorata var. alba".

Ami ~ Thank you for that info, I looked it up and think you are right. It is such a nice, care free begonia. It is easy to root too. I can just see this in your lovely gardens. Thanks again.

I never knew begonias could be scented. I love the dainty white petals
I was just looking back on your last couple of posts and seeing all the pretty flowers you have blooming. I bet it's looking really pretty there.

It is a beautiful one. I like the leaves on this one. I haven't come across any with a scent either. I'll have my sniffer tuned up next time I visit the nursery.

I'm glad someone had name for it. Fragrant too, how lovely.

Thanks Ami for the I.D. I love begonias and have many, but don't know the names of most of them.
