Gingerland from Caladiums4Less is gorgeous in bright shade. A bright white leaf with richly colored markings. I accidentally chose a deep red Lance Whorton to go next to it and they contrast well.

In my opinion, one of the most beautiful caladiums. Thrives in the Dallas metroplex (must treat as an annual unless you lift the bulbs), grows in full, compact clumps with lush color.

I have left my bulbs inground for two years and only a few come up. Rating it neutral because I like other varieties better.
