With colors that range from red to a pale pink, to white and deep rose and leaves that are shaped like arrows, lances or hearts, caladium plants can enhance almost any shady area. Plant in the shaded corners of the garden or plant in containers. They're perfect for shady window boxes where sun-loving annuals won't grow.
