|Angel wing begonia|
|Breeder||Eva Kenworthy Gray|
The cane begonias are a group of Begonia cultivars. Their name derives from their tough, bamboo-like stems. They can grow up to 10 ft (3.0 m) tall, which may necessitate staking. They are often ideal as houseplants when kept under control.
Angel wing begonias are hybrid cane Begonias which resulted from a cross between Begonia aconitifolia and B. coccinea. The hybridization was made by California plant breeder Eva Kenworthy Gray in 1926. The name derives from their pointed leaves.
The flowers are edible, with a sweet tart taste.
The superba begonias are cultivars of Begonia aconitifolia.
