The Modern Southern Garden: White Wonder Caladium


The Modern Southern Garden

The Profile

White Wonder Caladium

The modern southern garden should have a mix of contrasting bulbs scattered about. White Wonder Caladium is a beautiful, old-fashioned plant known for its heart-shaped foliage. These heat tolerate garden musts may be used in locations that receive either sun or shade as they are very adaptable. It is best practices to allow them early morning light, then cover from the hottest times of the day. This caladium variety may be identified by white frilly leaves with green margins & a small rosy point just where the curve meets. Bulbs should be planted in the spring time for a welcome addition to garden spaces once the heat of the summer sets in. White Wonder Caladiums compliment shade favorites such as ferns & hosta beautifully & make attractive border plants. I prefer to place them in front of the lilies as once their blooms fade, the caladiums begin to surface to perk up semi-sunny & shade locations in landscapes. They grow approximately 12 to 18-inches high & prefer moist soil that is fertilized regularly. Learn how to use White Wonder Caladium when entertaining & parties are in order.
