Description

Create a bridge between pink and green shades in the summer garden with 'Pink Cloud' Caladium, a fancy leaf cultivar for shade with some sun tolerance. 'Pink Cloud' is well-suited to shady beds and containers in large groups or on its own, but can tolerate some sun as long as it is sheltered from strong afternoon rays. Caladiums are ideal for pots, baskets, and patio containers, where their fast-growing foliage makes a statement; they can also be used as groundcovers in the warmest climates. Caladiums are heat lovers and strong growth will occur as heat builds. Plant bulbs 1-2 inches under fertile, moist soil after soil has warmed and well past the chance of frost.

Caladiums are perennial in zones 9-10; in cooler zones, you can lift and store the bulbs in a cool, dry location for the winter, then re-plant them in spring. Harmful if ingested.
