If you do a search for this shade-loving perennial online, you’ll often find it listed at around $50 for even a small pot. That’s because it is quite rare, fairly new and super cool. A hybrid of several Asian Mayapple species, Spotty Dotty has umbrella-shaped highly decorative leaves that measure 18″wide. They are decked out in splashes of green, gold, and chocolate brown. Garnet-red flowers appear below the showy leaves in spring. Because it does not spread or go dormant in summer like our North American Mayapples, Spotty Dotty makes for an excellent compliment plant to go with traditional woodland subjects like hostas and ferns.
