I know they're aroids, but Caladiums start out as bulbs, too

Stamford, CT(Zone 6b)

Since my first planting, with a bit of patience Caladiums have turned out to be a bulb with a lot of heart. Without a fancy bloom, their gift of curb appeal is endless as long as the temperatures are warm enough. And I think everyone can agree that this summer it has been pretty warm.

For a tropical plant, they certainly give their all for us in the northeastern part of the US. I hope we have some Caladium growing friends who can help us and we can help in return. And if you're in Lake Placid, Florida, I hope we'll be hearing from you. Thanks to Pirl, Bill and LariAnn, I have learned so much that I think we can spread it around.
