Colorful Shade-Loving Caladium Kathleen

Colorful Shade-Loving Caladium Kathleen

Colorful Shade-Loving Caladium Kathleen features gorgeous salmon pink, heart-shaped leaves with broad green borders. It's a beautiful addition with grown in groups along shaded walkways or perennial beds—or as an accent plant in mixed container plantings. Grown primarily for their foliage, caladium are tender plants that don't handle cold weather. 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.
