Polka Dot Begonia
After a long absence, Bloombox Club is pleased to reintroduce the Begonia maculata, a rare foliage plant with two-toned leaves and distinctive white polka dots.
The Polka Dot Begonia is revered for its unique and mesmeric appearance. Maculatas have long crinkle-cut leaves which finish in a point. Their foliage is coloured a 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 the main reason this plant has particular clout, is a widely-circulated legend that the Begonia inspired shoe designer Christian Louboutin to create his signature red-soled stilettos!
