Begonia 'Pink Teardrops' is a 2017 Plant Delights/JLBG introduction that we selected from thousands of seedlings from Begonia grandis 'Heron's Pirouette'. In side by side trials, our 2010 seedling that we named Begonia 'Pink Teardrops' substantially out-flowered not only its mother, but all of its siblings. For us, the 2' tall x 3' wide clumps of upright stalks are clothed in green foliage and topped with pendulous spikes of bright pink flowers from June through September. We think you'll really like this easy-to-grow, hardy begonia for your woodland garden. Since Begonia grandis reproduces by bulbils produced in the leaf axils in late summer, you'll have plenty to share.
'Pink Teardrops' blooms for an amazingly long time, many months. It does produce large numbers of bulbils so one will soon be able to make large masses of it. Maintenance consists of cutting it to the ground after frost. Part shade to bright shade and average moisture suits it best.
