DescriptionStunning Caladiums Add Brilliant Colour and Tropical Flair to Your Garden!
Unlike many _ oral plants with a limited period of blooming, the distinctive, brightly coloured foliage of caladiums puts on a spectacular display without interruption, from late spring through the entire summer and until the frosts of fall. The big, lush, heart-shaped leaves bring a tropical look to the landscape that makes you feel like you're on vacation in your own backyard!
Few plants are as versatile as caladiums—especially our sun-tolerant varieties! Plant them in borders, in beds or in patio containers. They even make wonderful houseplants.
It doesn't take a "green thumb" to grow these carefree caladiums. Just give them the right light conditions, and they practically take care of themselves. Lift in the fall and replant in the spring in all climate zones except zones 9-11, where they can remain in the landscape all year long.
Our Tropical Caladiums are the perfect landscape plants!
