Leopard plants add a pop of color to any garden and are admired for both their lovely blooms as well as their gorgeous foliage. The leopard plant gets its name from the dappled patterns found on many of these plants’ leaves. The plant sports small flowers that are shaped like daisies, and which bloom during the late fall and early winter. The plant is native to Asia and can thrive in most climates, but it will die if exposed to frost or below freezing temperatures. The plant prefers damp and shady growing areas and a soil rich in nutrients.
- Leopard plants thrive in damp areas and enjoy the shade
- Water the soil around the leopard plant consistently for best growth
- leopard plants are not easily susceptible to diseases, but watch out for slugs.
“Leopard plants in the garden can get by with very little sun and too much summer sun will wilt the leaves.”
