Caladium Lance Whorton


Caladium Lance Whorton

An amazing foliage plant that adds splashes on bold, brilliant color to sunny sites, shady spaces and everywhere in between. Distinctive, large, crimson leaves feature splashes of snowy white and are edged in a rich green border. The sturdy plant grows to 12-18" tall, ideal for tucking into darkened corners or between shrubs where the bright hues may lighten up the area. Caladium also makes an outstanding container variety, adding plenty of texture and color to mixed displays. We like Lance Whorton in front borders, along walkways or even as a ground cover planting. Leaves grow to 8" long and have a lightly frilled habit.
