Five Spot Nemophila Maculata is a hardy annual wildflower native to California, and this plant is cousin of Baby Blue Eyes. Easily grown from Five Spots seeds, this charming, compact growing wildflower produces masses of white blossoms with bright purple spots on the tips of each petal. Nemophila Maculata is a prolific bloomer, and the low to the ground carpet of delicate blooms looks absolutely magnificent in any garden.
Five Spot is a spectacular and dependable annual flower for rock gardens, containers, hanging baskets, pots, planting under trees and especially oaks. Nemophila Maculata seeds germinate fast under right conditions, and the established Five Spot plant grows best in cool climate and average, moist but well drained soil. When Five Spots is grown in hot summer areas, part shade is recommended for the best performance. The plant can re-grow itself following spring if seed falls on bare ground.
