One is split leaf philodendron, the other is Elephant Ears. And I want them to get huge quick...thus the stuffed pots...we are having a wedding in the backyard next month and can use all the flowers/plants we can find. I'll worry later if they get overgrown...ha ha! Right now I want the porch to look tropical for the wedding. :-))

Morganc, The pots are beautiful. But I'm looking past them through the railing and the yard looks like it's equally lovely. Could you post photos of your whole garden?

jasminesmom - YES...I love Caladiums and really wish they would come back year after year. But we do get freezes...and they croak! :-(

Did you know you can dig them up before the freeze, store and save them for next year?

I know...but I'm a lazy gardener and that sounds like WAY too much trouble. I like easy.

Cannas live through our winters, (so I have lots of them) you'd think Caladiums would too. It's not like the ground freezes or anything. Even Dahlias make it!

Our garage is full of Plumeria and a few others that we store there in the winter, and our greenhouse can't take any more plants due to space considerations. I guess I'm already doing "hard"...I want easy now!
