I know this isn't exactly the purpose of this sub forum, but I know a lot of you are just plain great at identifying plants. My wife received these flowers as a gift, but on one seems to know the type of flower they are. We want to figure out proper care for them and so far we are not doing a very good job. We live in Iowa, but that does not necessarily mean they are from this region. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Look like a begonia of some type, possibly tuberous. Very pretty.

Thanks Sparker. I am gonna try to find a reference and see if that works. My wife does not want it to die since it is so pretty and her care so far has caused a lot of browning of the flowers.

Begonia for sure. I think the sub-type is Astral (Something). Sorry I can not remember. I have some coral colored ones in my flower bed this year. Doing good so far.

Thanks Bowtie. I have been reading up on care instructions. It looks like she is actually watering it too much. The care isn't too bad. I will end up doing the work in the fall and spring, but that is fine by me. She kind of has a brown thumb. I really appreciate all the help in identification. I was completely lost.
