New Sun-Tolerant Caladium

by Charlie Nardozzi


Caladiums are known for their ability to brighten shady spots in the yard with their colorful leaves. Now there's a caladium that's more sun tolerant than other varieties, and its shorter stature expands the options of where you can grow it.

?Gingerland? caladium grows 15 inches tall and has large, curled, heart-shaped leaves. Each leaf unfurls creamy white with green edges and a dark red center. ?Gingerland? grows equally well in sun or shade. Its diminutive size makes it a great container plant that adds color to pots throughout the summer. For a bushier plant, simply pinch out the growing tip when young and the bulb will respond with multiple side shoots. In fall dig and store the bulbs, or bring the plant indoors to enjoy as a houseplant.

For more information on ?Gingerland? caladium, go to: Park Seed Company.
