Acmella oleracea 'Peek-A-Boo'

‘Peek-A-Boo’ Spilanthes was selected for its yellow flowers, each with a red eye poking up out of the foliage. The green foliage has a purple tinge in full sun turning more purple as fall approaches and the foliage can be used in salads or cooked as a green. Spilanthes is also known as the Toothache Plant because it has been used to numb pain. In the garden it is a great conversation piece when combined with other plants in a mixed container or it can be used as a flowering groundcover growing 12 to 15 inches tall and spreading 24 to 30 inches.
