Caladium 'Candidum' is a shade lover with beautiful arrow-shaped leaves of white with bright green veining.
Caladium 'Candidum' is commonly referred to as angel wings due to its beautiful, arrow-shaped leaves. An eye-catcher if there ever was one, this beauty's foliage is pure white with contrasting dark green veins. Expect glowing luminescence in shady areas as mass plantings, in containers and hanging baskets or as year round houseplants. Not hardy for any of us but it's easy to save the corms over winter (at 10 degrees Celsius) and bring them out in spring. Caladium love heat. Best to start indoors and move outside once nighttime temperatures are above 15 degrees Celsius. Deer resistant.
