The Tropicalismo Shade Collection will add layers of lush foliage to your gardens or containers for a modern, dramatic landscape. In the front, plant bright ‘Candidum’ Caladium, with green and white heart-shaped leaves (12-24” tall). Next, plant the gorgeous ‘Tapestry’ Caladium with vibrant pink veins and cream-colored centers on deep green leaves. (24-36” tall). In your third row, add a layer of depth with dramatic ‘Magic’ Elephant Ear’s purple-black leaves, which look velvety from a distance (36-48” tall). In the tallest row, ‘Imperial Taro’ Elephant Ear’s unusual, black-purple leaves and bright-green patterning complete the picture. The Tropicalismo Shade Collection is an easy, affordable way to create a large planting with major impact. These plants on their own can create a living wall, privacy screen, or a backdrop to make your bright flower bulbs and perennial plants really stand out. An excellent grouping for containers, patios, and balconies. Caladiums are beautiful natives of South American rainforests. With their brilliant colors and fascinating patterned leaves, they’ve become favorites for shaded areas. Elephant Ears are also a highlight in any garden, and very easy to grow and care for.
