Set of 3 Assorted Caladium
You will receive 3 Caladium in assorted colors. Each in a 4'' nursery pot fully rooted.
Caladiums combine colorful arrowhead-shape leaves with easy growing requirements to star in containers and shade gardens from early summer until frost. Plant them in part shade or where they will receive filtered sun; bright sun can scorch their leaves. Those large leaves can also be damaged by strong winds, so site accordingly. Pair caladiums with ferns, hostas, and other shade perennials in the landscape. They thrive in containers and are especially striking when planted alongside begonia, fuchsia, and impatiens.
Caladiums grow best in warm, moist, organically-rich, acidic soil. For that reason, don't plant these heat-lovers too early in the growing season. Early planting in cool earth results in slow growth and tuber rot when the tubers sit for long periods of time in moist soil.
Caladiums are hardy in Zones 9-10. In all other Zones, you can save tubers for planting the following year by digging them up at the end of the growing season. (Caladiums planted in a container can stay there as long as the container is brought inside.)
