I had a Tiger Begonia (Tolmiea) for years and gave away lots of cuttings.  I've now lost my original by leaving it out all winter.  I can't find one to buy anywhere.  Anyone know where I can get one please?

Elliedaisy -I am a bit confused as to which plant you had -tiger begonia and piggy back plant are different plants

I know Tolmeia as an outdoor perennial?

Oh, you're right, there were two different plants and I lost them both.  A lovely, stripey tiger begonia which does well indoors all year and in shade and gets tiny flowers on it sometimes.  I also had a piggy back plant which is fresh green and has minature leaves growing above the existing ones.  Its TWO plants I've lost as well as my mind.  The further I go towards 70 the dafter I get.  Any ideas please (about the plants I mean - not my head).

You are very, very kind but I don't know how we'd make that work.  Thank you anyway.
