description for "Caladium: Caladium 'White Christmas'"

This White Christmas caladium variety is white with green veins. Fancy Leafed Caladiums are very showy foliage plants with bright red, pink, green and white variegated leaves. You'll enjoy these South American beauties with heart-shaped, rainbow-colored leaves-prettier than most flowers. Pot the 'White Christmas' variety early indoors with a staring temperature of 70 degrees or more, then plant them, pot and all, outdoors in the shade 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 before frost arrives, dig, dry and store bulbs in a cool, dry frost-free place. -- edited by dtd pbcouchman
