CALADIUMS

CALADIUMS

Caladium is a genus of flowering plants in the family Araceae. They are often known by the common name elephant ear, heart of Jesus, and angel wings. There are over 1000 named cultivars of Caladium bicolor from the original South American plant.

Caladiums have big, heart-shaped leaves that display amazing color combinations of white, pink, red and green. The plants love hot, humid weather and grow best in full to partial shade, though most varieties 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.
