Polka Dot Plant

Hypoestes phyllostachya


From Wikipedia: "Hypoestes phyllostachya is cultivated as an ornamental plant commonly used as a houseplant but can also be grown outside as an annual plant. The most common type has green leaves with pink spots, although it can range from white to any shade of pink to red. It may produce small pink/purple flowers that sightly resemble scented geraniums. Many different cultivars have been created with different foliage colors."

Kiloueka, if you edit this spotting, you will find out you can drag the pin to the exact location the spotting was made.

There's now much I can do about that, since that's where the pin goes when I type in the city name, thanks for the ID though :)

Hah, no I don't think they do. You should fix the "pin" placement on the map, Kiloueka :)
