I've been receiving A LOT of emails and phone calls from you good folks out in Texas the last couple of weeks asking me if it's to late to plant caladiums.
The quick and short answer is "Not by a Mile"!!
As hot as it's getting, you will see leaves in a fraction of the time as if you had planted the bulbs back in April or whenever it was your nights started warming up. To be honest with you, you could plant caladiums on Labor Day and you'd be enjoying them in a week or so and than until Mother Nature decided differently but it'd still most likely be into November, maybe December when they started fading.

|My daughter planted hers before I did. Both of us are loving the bright colors where the freezing weather melted most all of our tropicals. I'm still working in the backyard every day to salvage some plants I'd had for 30 years.
I sure plan to order more caladiums from you next year....for both daughter and myself. I'll try to take a few photos soon.
