An Interesting Begonia

This strange looking begonia has lived on my patio all season long. I purchased it at Shakespeare's Garden in Brookfield (my favorite nursery) in June. It's done quite nicely on my semi-shaded patio, and put out numerous sprays of tiny white flowers. Truth be told, I didn't know it was a begonia when I first spied it. No matter.

It's done so well all summer that it's going to be one of the few plants I'll save over the winter. Come the cold weather, most patio plants get pulled up and relegated to the compost pile. This guy looks so handsome in his terra-cotta pot that I just gotta give him a winter home.

Now, if I can just find out his name! Anyone out there have a clue?
