Caladium Candidum

Caladium Candidum

Light up shaded gardens and patios with Caladium Candidum. Its heart-shaped, white leaves with green veins and borders stand out next to other plants. Grown specifically for their ornamental foliage, caladiums are tender perennials that can enhance almost any shady area, from patios and decks to shaded corners of the garden. Growing 12-18" tall, they can be grown in patio pots or the garden. They're excellent for shaded window boxes where sun-loving annuals won't grow. Caladium Candidum is also a standout in a conservatory or warm porch during the winter months.

Botanical Name: Caladium x hortulanum 'Candidum'
