Pack of 5
Item #07653-PK-5


Fancy leaved caladium for sun or shade

Makes an excellent houseplant too

Caladium Strawberry Star is a tender perennial (Zones 10-12) summer-flowering bulb, grown for its dramatic, long-lasting foliage that adds color and texture to the garden, summer into fall. A fancy leaved caladium variety, commonly called angel wings, Strawberry Star has large heart-shaped leaves on slender, upright stalks. Beautifully variegated, the showy light green leaves have pink speckles and a dark green stem and veins.

Strawberry Star has a compact, mounding habit and a medium growth rate. Shown to best effect when grouped or massed, caladiums add beautiful color and texture to beds, borders, hanging baskets, and containers. They are also an excellent option for underplanting, and the bulbs can be forced and grown indoors as a houseplant.

Extremely easy to grow and low maintenance, caladiums are tropical plants that thrive in warm temperatures with high humidity. They grow best in shady to dappled sun locations with fertile, organically rich, consistently moist, well-draining soil, having an acidic pH but tolerate a wide range of soils. Caladiums require little maintenance but benefit from monthly fertilization. Strawberry Star is disease resistant and heat, humidity, and sun tolerant, thriving in full sun, especially in northern climates.
