TOOTHACHE PLANT NUMBS THE MOUTH

Unique Novelty Plant

Spilanthes oleracea

A really fun plant! Called the Toothache Plant because chewing on one of the flower buds will numb your mouth and make you salivate. It’s harmless, though.

Also called the Eyeball Plant for obvious reasons. Easy to grow and usually treated as an annual, about 12″ in height and 18″ width. Makes a very unusual and attractive accent plant.

Full sun to moderate shade. Blooms from mid-summer until frost.
