Caladiums are primarily grown for their foliage. These are tropical plants and do not tolerate cold weather at all. You could start it in a pot in a warm location to get an early start, but do not plant it outside until all danger of frost is past. In fall, once a frost has killed back the top, you will have to dig the caladium up and save it to replant next spring or else plan on purchasing a new one the following spring.
