Caladiums are tropical bulbs that thrive warm and humid climates. In warm, frost-free regions, they can remain outdoors year round. In colder climates or during colder seasons, Caladiums should be brought inside to avoid frost damage.
Caladiums are members of the Araceae family and may commonly be referred to as Elephant Ear plants. There are well over 1000 named cultivars of Caladium, each with distinct colors, patterns and shapes.
