About Caladium Bulbs
Bulbous plants thrive under adverse conditions such as poor soil or shade, and are therefore well suited to use in a garden. They can be intermingled with other plants, used in pots, or even placed in the lawn or underneath fruit trees. Caladiums have big, heart-shaped leaves that display amazing color combinations of white, pink, red and green.
Most varieties of caladium can also be grow in full sun as long as they get plenty of water, this gives you many more options for planting caladiums in your garden and landscape, and for combining them with other sun loving annuals, perennials and bulbs.
Though caladiums rarely flower, their beautiful leaves guarantee a colorful show wherever they are planted -- beneath trees, between shrubs, in perennial borders or in containers. The plants love hot, humid weather and grow best in full to partial shade.
