Caladium 'Florida Cardinal' features large, undulating leaves in scarlet with green edges. It's striking in annual containers with Coleus, ornamental Sweet Potatoes, Fuchsia, and other shade lovers.
Caladiums require warmth, so wait until soil temperatures reach 60F to plant outdoors. Break off the first large sprout as it emerges, which will encourage many sprouts to develop, yielding more leaves per bulb. Hardy in Zones 10-11. Elsewhere after frost arrives, dig, dry and store bulbs in a cool, dry frost free place. Excellent for a conservatory or warm sun porch during winter.
