Caladiums are grown for their showy leaves. These have white centers with contrasting dark green borders. In summer they produce clumps of long-stalked, heart-shaped leaves. Caladiums are extremely easy to grow in moist well-drained soil. This shade-loving but sun-tolerant plant thrives in heat and humidity. Soil temperature needs to be 70 degrees F. or higher when planting. In northern climates, where they may not survive the winter if left unprotected, you can plant them in containers and lift them in the fall to store them for next year. Hardiness Zones 9-10. You will receive 3 bulbs per order.
