Illuminate shaded areas with this versatile caladium. Caladiums Florida Moonlight features bright white foliage with pale green veins and a thin, green margin. Whether planted in groups in perennial beds or as accents in mixed container plantings, Florida Moonlight shines. Grown primarily for their heart-shaped foliage, caladiums are tender plants that don't handle the cold. Because of this, many gardeners plant them in pots indoors and then move them outdoors after the danger of spring frost has passed. They also add color and charm to a conservatory or warm sun porch during winter. If not in zones 10-11, dig before frost, dry and store the bulbs in a warm, dry frost-free place.
