description for "Caladium: Caladium 'Candidum'"

Caladium 'Candidum' is snowy white with green veins and border. These caladiums are very showy foliage plants. You'll enjoy these South American beauties with heart-shaped, rainbow-colored leaves..prettier than most flowers. Pot Caladium 'Candidum' early indoors with a starting temperature of 70 degrees or more, then plant them pot and all outdoors in the sun or semi-shade after spring frosts. Or, plant them in shady window boxes where sun-loving annuals won't grow. Water well and spray leaves frequently during hot, dry weather. Excellent for conservatory or warm sun porch during winter. Hardy in zones 10-12. Elsewhere after frost arrives, dig, dry and store bulbs in a cool, dry frost-free place. -- edited by dtd pbcouchman
