Gingerland can also be planted in full sun. Very rare for a Caladium.

(Zone 9a)

In the sun, really? I just saw some of those today; now I may have to make another trip back to the nursery to get some.

San Diego, CA(Zone 10b)

I've been really enjoying all the caladium pics! I especially like the white ones...I got these a couple months ago, I had no clue of their name though..now I thinks it's a Florida Beauty!

Thanks Eclipse - The Caladiums were just great this year! I planted about 150 bulbs in a nice shaded spot at my front door and I felt like laying down in them! hahaha

KatG, how lovely, I feel like laying there too, lol! Where do you get your caladiums? I've been ordering from "Caladiumbulbs 4 less" and I've been really satisfied with them.
This is Aaron - huge leaves! C'mon guys, let's share some more caladium pictures!

KatG & Dale -

I LOVE your caladiums! I have these planted around my royal poinciana in the backyard and I do believe there are more in my future. They look so stunning and different from anything else in the garden!

Is this a revival?

This year's favorite is White Ruffles>

This one I don't know the name of....

It is the first year for these bulbs and usually it takes a couple years or more for caladium leaves to reach this size.

I am thinking these will be very showy in the future.

Dale , those last ones are so unique. Look...at the bottom! I can see some offsets...........LOL

How sad that the beautiful flowers have to be marred by security service signs. What a shame it has come to this.
Awesome caladiums, they are very happy there.

Tampa, FL(Zone 10a)

The above un-named caladiums are White Xmas. I looked back (or up) this thread and I had a photo with them in it, but, they just don't look the same. Maybe it is maturity?

I have been collecting Philodendrens lately - distant cousin of caladiums.
