|Caladium foliage will not tolerate frost so they are grown as a summer annual in your area. They can be started early indoors in small pots with gently bottom heat if desired (many gardeners do this because it gives them a head start), or can be planted outside after frost and once the soil has had a chance to warm up. To keep them from year to year, the caladiums must be dug up in the fall and stored indoors as one would cannas.
