Ghostly silvery white with neatly delineated green veins and margin, this is an essential luminous component of an evening garden and a fine ingredient of a Caladium combination. Easy-to-grow, but best in at least some shade.
Caladium, a small tropical American genus, has given rise to numerous hybrids that are prized for their foliage and preference for shade. The leaves blend deep greens, intense reds, pinks, and white in patterns that range from elegant to energizing. To perform well, they need heat, ample moisture, and regular feeding. Perennial in Zone 10.
