Caladiums, Caladiums, Caladiums ... and YES, more Caladiums! Whether in a shady border, mass plantings ... or just a few growing in containers, you can't go wrong with the beautiful foliage of Caladiums to brighten up shady spots in the garden! Lovey dubby

I love them, but cannot grow them here, the nights are too cold even in mid summer and they die. Sad

I do love caladiums in the garden, I lost a lot of them due to rare very cold temps a couple of years ago. I need to start more this year.
