Growing roses that love Florida
Sherry, those are great caladiums (I almost wrote coleus again...). I can't believe how colorful, huge and perfect the leaves are. There is nothing like them here. I remember growing them in Dallas and still miss them. Thanks for showing these wonderful plants.
Thank you, Masha. I wonder why they aren’t grown there – not hot enough or wet enough?
Beautiful caladiums! They look great when grouping together or as companion plants with others.
Beautiful leaves !!! I am trying to grow some caladiums, after seeing those in your garden...
You're making me wish I had more of them. Beautiful!
Gorgeous! Aaron is handsome on his own but mixed with Carolyn Wharton(?) and White Queen(?) he is really outstanding.
I love caladiums, though they've never done very well for me. What a nice show of them you have!
Nice combinations of caladiums, Sherry. They're all so pretty that I have trouble picking a few varieties. White is one of my favorites...so cool looking!
Yes, Ami, they do look good grouped together. You’d never know there are several azalea bushes and a hydrangea under these.Dani, there’s nothing easier. Just give them some room because those big leaves can take up a lot of real estate.Buying bulbs makes getting more of them more affordable. A few years ago I bought them directly from the farm on Ebay. Thanks for commenting, Davy. Yours look beautiful, too.Kay, I don’t know the names of the others that I have. You probably know better. I love them in the shade, and though some do well in sun, my sun is all filled. Plus these are not plants that take up only a little space. They really do make a big statement, and their leaf colors and patterns are beautiful.HolleyGarden, I wonder why they don’t do well for you. Do you see them at all in Texas? They do well here in only slightly amended sand. Maybe it’s your colder winter temps. And thank you, they do make a big bang for the buck.I like the white ones, too, Susan. I had a few of one called White Wing a few years ago that was gorgeous and got really big, so I moved them around. They did fine for a while. I can’t remember if they died or I got rid of them sadly because of their size. Probably the latter. I wish I had a bigger garden sometimes.
