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!
Roberta : )
Oct 18 is my daughter's wedding date...otherwise I'd LOVE to go to St Pete!
I'm going to twist Bill's (C4Less) to find some of the odd caladiums that have come out recently. I tried a few this year, and really like most of them...
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!
It depends upon the variety, floridabunnie. Some caladiums do fine in sun, and others just can't take it here in Florida. Miss Muffett is a good one for sun, but I bought it along with one that we think is called White Queen (first pic), and the White Queen needs nearly full shade to look good. It wilts as soon as the sun hits it no matter how much I water it, and the leaves get scorched. Candidum is a good white one that seems fairly adaptable, but its leaves are smaller in the sun. My Caroline Whartons are mostly green in shade and get pinker in partial sun.
The Thai hybrids need filtered sun at most. Mine are in the good shade of a big oak tree.
