Begonia Flower Carpet of Brussels

Every two years in Brussels since 1971 on the Grand-Place a Flower Carpet is put together and displayed. This year the Brussels Flower Carpet will be on view August 14-19, 2012.

The Flower Carpet is made from the beautiful summer-flowering perennials, the begonia. Belgium cultivates nearly 60 million begonia tubers annually as one of the worlds’ largest producer.  The production of the Flower Carpet begins a year in advance. Each time the theme is different. To construct the Flower Carpet it takes about 120 volunteers and anywhere from 500,000 to 1,000,000 begonias.
