I remember when I was little, I thought that caladiums, coleus, hostas, and begonias were old lady flowers.  I could not see why anyone would want to plant them in their garden.
I now love these shade loving plants.  They are the plants that add color to my Big Woods garden.  I think this probably means that I am definitely getting older.
I have tried different varieties of caladiums every year.  I try to winter the bulbs each year; but last year, I waited too late to dig the bulbs.  So this year, I had to buy new bulbs.
All of my caladium bulbs this year came from a sale at
Home Depot.

Oh Joyce I love your thinking that you are saying ....
I think this probably means that I am definitely getting older.
The same feelings now I have many many times, the things which I dislike in my childhood are mostly now my favourite.. its TIME TIME AND TIME ..

I am a lover of indoor plants, but not a good gardner, ( i dont know why).Your Caladiums are beautiful and very healthy, I had two last year but I lost them while shifting to another house...
Love to see you and if you have a bit time than please visit me here at
Hope you have some opinion for me.. Love

Have you caladiums every bloomed? I planted them for the first time this year and one bloomed. But I wasn't fast enough to get a picture. I live in southeast Alabama.
