This new caladium creation is a sun lover with flair! Frilly and distinctive, our Sangria caladiums make lovely borders and we have to admit, any planter or basket will pop with this cheerful caladium. Bulbs should be planted in the landscape in the spring after the last frost. Generally, plant your bulbs with the soil temperatures warm to 65°F-70°F. If you are planting caladiums in northern climes, you can start the bulbs earlier in a warm, moist (not soggy) place inside and give them a head start. Plant right side up. Caladium bulbs have a rather smooth bottom side and knobby (these are actually the eyes or growing points) top side. Though they will grow no matter which way you orient them, planting with the top side up will provide you with the shortest sprouting time and the happiest plant. Your bulbs should be planted deep enough to cover them with 1 ½” to 2″ of soil. A bit of bone meal would make your caladiums happy. Water after planting.
