Spilanthes is easily grown in average, moist but well-drained soils in full sun. This plant is characterized by its small, bulb-like flowers that are yellow with a red center. It is traditionally used medicinally, as its roots and flowers can help soothe the pain of toothaches.
Spilanthes is low-growing, about four to ten inches high with a mounding habit, but will sprawl out and consume two feet around it. It thrives in high humidity and well-drained soils. It grows in the ground or in containers and makes a wonderful addition to border gardens as accent plants. Once established, it is easy to grow.
