Looks like a Rieger begonia. It looks nothing at all like a dieffenbachia.

Yep, begonia. Not just any begonia, though. I don't have the time to figure out which named variety it is but it is one of the rhizomatous Begonias. Here's two links to similar rhizomatous Begonias:

Kartuz Greenhouses: Begonia Carousel
They have all sorts named and pictured if you go to the main page:
Kartuz Greenhouses: Rhizomatous Begonias A to L


The one pictured on this page is similar, too: Begonia hybrida Baby Down | Peace Tree Farm
