Begonia chitoensis

There has been a bit of confusion surrounding the name. The same plant has been available under the name B.sinensis but this is supposedly the correction - however the only description I have of the species says red flowered!
I have two clones of the plant, that I think are different. This one came from Spinners.

I really thought last winter had killed it, but during June a shoot emerged from deep within the pot - all the surface rhizome has been turned to mush - so I am trying to cosset it a bit this year. In future I should probably plant a bit outside, where it would be better protected than it is in a pot.
