My mom gave me wild begonias handed down from her mom. While mine spread a tiny bit each year, i would like more to spread throughout my yard

    Julie, I think you want to look for hardy begonia, Begonia grandis. It's often a passalong plant, as it was in your family, but named cultivars ("Heron's Pirouette" is one) have been developed that may be found in nurseries or online sources.

    why not take cuttings of the begonias you have? they are easy to root with a little care and that would insure you have the same plant
