USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

Plant Information
(12-24” tall x 24” wide), ‘Red Flash’ Fancy Leaf Caladium is sure to please. Each heart-shaped, olive green leaf is painted with a burst of red veining and a splattering of pink freckles – responding with vigor as summer’s heat and humidity get under way. Plant tubers of ‘Red Flash’ caladium in the late spring when evening temperatures are steadily above 65F. Choose a rich, moisture-retentive soil in a shady to partly-shady location. Feed ‘Red Flash’ Caladiums regularly with a balanced fertilizer for vigorous growth. Gardeners can treat ‘Red Flash’ like an annual in the fall, or can choose to dig the tubers before a hard freeze and store in a dark location between 55-60F in vermiculite or sawdust. Once potted back up in the spring, bottom heat will encourage the tubers to re-sprout and get a jump on their summer growth.
