These colourful little sub-shrubs are perfect for brightening up the patio or a windowsill indoors! Polka Dot Plants boast evergreen, spotted foliage in a range of vibrant colours. In summer, a host of small, tubular, purple-pink flowers appear. Hypoestes phyllostachya are tender plants, best grown as annuals in beds or patio pots. However, these vibrant plants can also be grown in a warm room or conservatory making colourful houseplants. Height and spread: 30cm (12").

Please note: Some houseplants are toxic or harmful to pets if ingested. If you believe your pet has consumed a poisonous plant then seek veterinary attention immediately. Take a sample of the plant with you.

Feed and water regularly until plants are well established. When grown as a houseplant, Hypoestes phyllostachya should be grown at a minimum temperature of 10c (50F).
Pot up plug plants and grow them on in warm frost free conditions until all risk of frost has passed. When plants are well grown, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7-10 days before planning in their final positions. Plant out in a sheltered spot in sun or semi-shade, on any non-alkaline soil. Alternatively, grow Polka Dot Plants on a windowsill, with bright, indirect light, away from the glare of strong afternoon sun.
