Caladium ‘Red’ is a foliage favorite adding a burst of color to any landscape with deep red veins and lovely dark green edging. The deep red veins on these leaves create a burst pattern found on few caladiums.
Caladiums are a popular choice for shady gardens and make excellent house plants! Simply plant 2-3 tubers in a 6″ pot to add color and greenery to your home.
Caladium tubers can be dug and stored indoors in colder climates when planted outdoors. When the foliage yellows and droops in the fall, lift the tubers with the foliage still attached, clean them of excess soil, and allow them to air-dry in a warm, sunny location. When the foliage breaks away freely from the tubers, pack them in lightly moistened peat moss or sand. Please keep them in a dry, well-ventilated place where the temperature is cool (50°-60°F).
