My goodness! This is an unusual and attractive annual flowering plant that should be a must for every garden! Five Spot is appropriately named because of the 5 bright royal purple polka dots that rest at the end of the pure white petals. This amazing annual flower blooms from early March until early summer. Growing to a maximum height of 12″, Five Spot is ideal for low borders, edging a garden path and suitable for container and window box planting. With its stunning contrast of purple on snow white, this plant is also an excellent accent in hanging baskets.
Five Spot prefers full sun to partially shaded areas. Five Spot is an annual that dies at first frost. It is a hardy annual that grows very, very fast and blooms profusely. Although an annual, Five Spot may reseed if the seeds fall on bare ground. Seeds are packaged and germination tested for current year.
