  • These flowers are irregular in shape and arise from the leaf axils; they may be solitary or in small clusters.
  • Flowers in Spring and Summer

2. Caladiums

  • Brightly colored foliage in shades of red, pink, and white. Excellent as a border plant or planted in groups.
  • Ask our Landscape Advisors for specific varieties to meet your needs. Do not plant until the ground warms in late Spring.
  • Prefers moist, well-drained, highly organic soil.
  • Some of these will need to be in shade others will do fine in sunny areas.

3. Begonias
