Polka Dot Begonia
After a long absence, Bloombox Club is pleased to reintroduce the Begonia maculata, a beautiful foliage plant with two-toned leaves and distinctive white polka dots.
The Polka Dot Begonia is a highly coveted plant, thanks to its unique appearance. Maculatas have long crinkle-cut leaves which finish in a point. Their foliage is coloured deep green on top, with a deep reddish-pink overleaf. The Polka Dot variety has a series of perfect white spots on the top. With respect to their shape and pattern, an alternate common name for the Polka Dot Plant is ‘Trout Plant.’
But there's another reason this plant is special. According to rumour, this Begonia inspired shoe designer Christian Louboutin to create his signature red-soled stilettos! So you're not just getting a unique plant, you may also be taking home a slice of history.
