Foliage with ruby red speckles and veining are outlined with deep green margins for vibrant, showstopping color. A great addition to combination containers. Caladium Carolyn Whorton tends to be more sun tolerant than some Angel Wings; however, will still need shade during the hot afternoon sun to prevent leaf scorching. 3 bulbs per bag. Bulb size 1 ½-2 ½” diameter.
*NOTE: Bulbs will need to be lifted in fall in zones 3-7.
A tropical look with variegated foliage! These showy plants are offered in eye-catching hues of bright red, pink, green and white. Caladium offer spectacular color throughout the summer to enhance any shaded area. Large arrowhead-shaped leaves are showy additions to any shaded spot – decks, patios, shady window boxes.
Hardy in zones 8-10. Caladiums prefer loose, slightly acidic soil for good root growth and are heavy feeders. Pot early indoors in shallow pots or flats with peat moss or light potting soil approximately 2” deep. Bulbs will take three to six weeks for leaves to emerge. Bulbs can be moved outdoors pot and all in semi-shade after last spring frost and can be planted directly in well-drained soil once the outdoor soil temp is about 65-70°F. Amend soil with plenty of peat or pine bark and add a well-balanced 10-10-10 fertilizer after foliage has emerged. Follow with a 5-10-10 approximately every four weeks until fall. Only fertilize while plant is actively growing. Water thoroughly when the soil is dry to the touch. Lift tubers in the fall in zones 3-7 and store in a cool, dry, frost-free location over winter. Can store in dry peat or wood shavings, then replant the following spring after the last frost.
