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.
