Rosy Leaf Caladium Product Details
Caladium x hortulanum
12 - 24", depending on variety
9 - 10
Large peltate heart-shaped leaves with colorful membranes.
Plant 2" deep (bud tips up) and 10" apart. Water well after planting. Place in warm, filtered light away from direct sun light, which will scorch the leaves.
Valued for decorative ornamental leaves, especially as potted plants. Great way to add color to your patio or garden without waiting on plants to bloom. Heart-shaped leaves emerge from bulbs to form clumps of colorful heavily-veined leaves. Perfect mixed in with hosta for lots of color in the shade.
Caladiums are tender and need to be moved indoors for the winter months, or moved to an unheated garage until spring.
Rosy Leaf Caladium Customer Reviews
More beautiful every dayReview by Jeanette Oglenski - Plano, TX Posted on 2014-08-04 20:08:57
I potted these in a 14" pot for each of them and set in my front entry. They are beautiful and everyone comments on them when they come to the door. In the spring I will transfer them to the border of the house, and start more for the entryway.
Our Rosy Leaf Caladium (caladium x hortulanum) is a short and compact grower that makes an excellent choice for use in both landscape borders and containers. The unique foliage features decorative ornamental leaves in a lovely heart shape that is perfect for mixing with other plants and varieties or can be potted individually for an interesting piece. The leaves are a rosy shade of pink with deeply colored veins and are outlined in a contrasting green edging, making the pink caladium a great solution in order to add color to your garden without having to wait for other plants to bloom.
The Rosy Leaf Caladium should be planted in a warm place with full shade or in an area that receives filtered light, as direct exposure to sun light may scorch or damage the leaves. Depending on the variety, the plant grows to an estimated height of 12 to 24 inches with a 10 to 15 inch spread. To plant, place two inches deep with bud tips up and ten inches apart. Water well after planting and keep soil well-drained. Caladiums grow at a moderate rate. Due to their tender qualities, they need to be moved indoors for the winter months, or moved to an unheated garage until spring.
