Availability: Out of stock

Bright white leaves with green veins and margins, the White Queen Caladium (Caladium 'White Queen') goes one step further with a gorgeous red splash at the center that radiates out along the interior veins. These large heart-shaped leaves look like showy arrowheads for your shade garden and interiorscaping enjoyment!

The prominent red venation cries out for use in your summer plantings and containers! These striking foliage ornamentals lighten the shade of your landscape, porches and patios in the shade! Even hanging planters and window boxes look great with the addition of these foliage accents!

White Queen Caladium is a vivid ornamental in USDA growing zones 10 and 11, and colorful focal points throughout all growing zones. Use these tender perennial bulbs as annual accents and seasonal color, simply dig the tubers in the fall and store them for next spring in a frost-free location, or bring these plants indoors to use as houseplants!

Planting and Application:

Indoors, in bright sunny windows out of the direct sunlight, sunrooms and your covered porches, Caladiums add their tropical impact to your interiorscaping and bright color to your summer plantings and décor! Perfectly happy in containers and pots on your shaded porches and covered seating areas, these delicate foliage accents don't mind the heat.

White Queen Caladium in the landscape works wonderfully in shade gardens, rain gardens and around water features where they can bask in the lower light and higher moisture levels in those locations. Use as groundcover and edging, in planters and containers in the dappled shade, or in groupings to bring some vibrancy to the gloom!

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Indoors, Caladium loves bright sunlight but not direct. Outdoors Caladium prefers shade with a bit of morning sun and shade for the rest of the day. Or plant in moist locations in dappled sunlight. Too much light will cause the vibrant colors to fade and the leaf edges to brown. During their growing season, these plants like their rich well-draining soil to be kept evenly moist but never soggy. A 3-4 inch layer of arborist mulch helps hold in moisture and keep the roots cool. Dig the tuberous corms in the fall and store them in a frost-free location for the winter.

  • Prefers Full Shade & Partial Shade
  • Organically Rich Soil
  • Well-Drained Moist Soil
  • Appreciates Mulched Beds
  • Clean Mounds As Foliage Yellows
  • Lift Bulbs in Fall Before Frost

Gorgeous alone or with other Caladiums, the showy White Queen Caladium will add that dash of royalty to your shade gardens! But only if you reserve yours today from NatureHills.com!
