Hardy Begonia

Begonia grandis ‘Heron’s Pirouette’ partial shade

Though the polished triangular foliage resembles the species, it was the masses of deep pink, nearly 12 in. long flower clusters, pirouetting with a dancer’s grace that caught Dan Hinkley’s keen eye during a 1997 Japanese expedition. Draped on slender pendulous stems, the richly hued flowers, highlighted by lavender accents, deliver a splendid nonstop performance from June until fall; later warm pink seed heads provide a midautumn encore.

Relishing well-drained soil and bright shade, this delicate-looking hardy Begonia is a sterling choice for a container or for massing as a bedding plant.

Blooms June – early October.

Size: 15" high x 15" wide; hardy to zone 6.
