Caladium x hortalanum 'Redflash'
|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.
Its leaves have deep red centers that radiate outward to green margins and are liberally splashed with white translucent dots. Needs good drainage to prevent root rot.
