One of our highly desired plants thanks to its unique appearance
The Polka Dot Begonia is a beautiful foliage plant with two-toned leaves and distinctive white polka dots. Maculatas have long crinkle-cut leaves which finish with 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.
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! You're not just getting a unique plant, you may also be taking home a slice of history and fashion! Its unusual looks may give off the idea that they are picky plants, but once it's settled in the right spot (away from radiators and air conditioning vents) it will be fairly easy to care for.
