This Heronswood introduction of the durable Begonia grandis was made from wild-collected seed from Dan Hinkley's 1997 expedition to Japan. While the triangular green foliage on the vigorous 3' tall x 6' wide clump is similar to the species, the huge and excessively large flower clusters of deep pink make this a unique selection. For us, Begonia 'Heron's Pirouette' begins flowering in June and continues treating hummingbirds non-stop until fall. As with the species, Begonia 'Heron's Pirouette' reproduces true from axillary bulbils, so you'll soon have plenty to share. Very easy and very nice!
