description for "Caladium: Caladium 'Miss Muffet'"

This Miss Muffett caladium variety is cream with red dots. Fancy-leaf 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 'Miss Muffett' 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. 'Miss Muffet' is a dwarf variety with unusual foliage of white and green with red spots. 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
