Native to South Africa, Madagascar and South East Asia, Hypoestes Phyllostachya is a colourful evergreen shrub commonly called Polka Dot Plant or Freckle Face Plant. It's a great way to add a splash of colour to your home or garden throughout spring. The 'Red Splash' variety has eye-catching foliage in a variegated red and green colour scheme that's bound to be the centre of attention. To achieve the best colour and to stop your plant getting too leggy, keep it in a brightly-lit position.
