Splash Select™ White Polka Dot Plant
Splash Select™ White Polka Dot Plant Beloved Favorite
- Easy to Grow
- Great Filler Plant
- Long-Lasting Greenery
- Edging, Borders, Containers and More
- Wonderful Houseplant
A generational favorite, our Splash Select™ White Polka Dot Plant is a beautiful annual beloved by growers for its interesting and very distinct variegated color patterns; no two Polka Dot Plants will ever look alike. This herbaceous annual takes on a mounded form that makes it a suitable plant for a number of applications.
You'll easily recognize the Polka Dot Plant by its pointy white leaves that are spotted in hodgepodge fashion with vibrant green color. Its colors lend it easily to becoming a background plant in a flower bed or rock garden where it complements other plantings without becoming the center of attention.
Not that the Polka Dot Plant wants to hide demurely amid your other plants and flowers. Instead, it adds a unique texture and shape to your flower bed or garden that brings a sense of cohesion to the entire presentation. For this reason, it's often selected as a filler plant among more flamboyant annuals.
Its mound-like shape makes the Polka Dot a favorite for adding to a hanging basket of other plants that may trail or vine down the side. When used like this, it provides a verdant center point that is only enhanced by its pot mates. On its own, the Polka Dot Plant makes an effective border edge, or plant it en masse along the edges of a garden path for a striking look that you can enjoy for the entire season.
If you're looking for an ideal annual for those steep areas of the landscape where you just want an easy-to-grow ground cover that eliminates excess weed whacking, the Polka Dot is your plant. And while the Polka Dot Plant thrives in full sun, it's also tolerant of shade, adding to its versatility among annuals and making it ideal for everything from containers to mass plantings.
Polka Dot plants can also thrive indoors as houseplants when given lots of bright indirect light, consistent warm temperatures, and high humidity. These plants make great terrarium specimen providing a splash of color and visual interest.
