Begonia grandis Heron's Pirouette, Hardy Begonia

Begonia grandis Heron’s Pirouette

A fantastic cultivar with exquisite, large clusters of deep pink blossoms which dangle off pinkish-red stems all summer. Its winged-shaped green foliage creates a soothing, lush display. Reproduces from fascinating auxiliary bulbils and seeds that drop to the ground and sprout. Excellent ground cover for shady spots. Hummingbirds delight in its nectar. Prefers consistent moisture but tolerant of dry shade once established. Late to emerge in spring.
