Description: An old-fashioned houseplant with a long history of cultivation, the Freckle Face Plant has only recently been given serious consideration by plant scientists. In the past this species had been a relatively rare houseplant, and for good reasons. The original species does have polka-dotted leaves, but their colors are not particularly inspiring. The flowers, in shades of white, pink, and purple, are attractive, but not very dramatic. Plant breeders, however, have hybridized the Freckle Face Plant, and the resulting cultivars (cultivated varieties) are quite attractive. The contrasting colors of pink and green on the leaves of cultivars such as ‘Pink Splash’ are unusual and have found favor with many houseplant enthusiasts.
