Caladium bicolor 'John Peed'
Angel Wings, Elephant's Ear
|With large, brilliantly-colored, heart-shaped leaves, Caladiums add form and texture to bright-shade gardens. Many named varieties come in bold color combinations of red, rose, pink, green, silver and white, often with dark veins in the leaves. A tropical native, it likes plenty of water, heat and high humidity. Excellent in pots. Protect from strong winds. Lift and store tubers in the fall. Also grown as house plants year-round.
Brilliantly colored leaves distinguish Caladium, either as a pot plant or as a border. Its ornamental leaves add a welcome touch of the tropics to any garden.
