Description
Caladium Xplosion has a creamy white background, bronzy red veining and green margins; 12"-18" leaves; winter hardiness zone 10-11. Photo credit Abbott Ipco. Inc.

Spectacular, colorful South American native, suitable for full shade, but also performs very satisfactorily with a constant, tiny bit of drip irrigation in our full-sun garden. New hybrids (Florida series) are being bred with more substance and thicker leaves to help withstand the hot summer sun so they can ultimately be planted anywhere! We've also found that the leaves work remarkably as filler material in flower arrangements and make a right proper 'cut and come again' plant. The only finicky thing about them is that they HATE being planted in cool soil, but should be planted right away when you receive them. So you need to start them inside in 2"-3" pots, giving them bottom heat (see pg. 49 to check out our favorite heat mat.). Once the ground warms up to ~65°-70°F at a depth of ~4", it's a good time to plant them. Gives lasting color ALL summer everywhere and is less expensive than many annuals! All caladiums make excellent container plants by themselves or in combination with annuals, perennials or other bulbs. Sizes of leaves vary depending on cultivar. These tubers are from tissue culture stock so they should be more vigorous and give superior performance. Top sized #1 tubers are about 1/2" -2 1/2" in diameter; plant 1 per sq. ft.; overwinters in whz 10-11; super summertime performer in any area that has summer heat.
