The scoop on Caladium Carolyn Whorton

One of the best pink caladiums available today, Carolyn Whorton sports brilliant crimson veining, pink leaf interiors, deep green edges and overall splashes. Very showy. Performs well in full sun to partial shade, a nice wide range. Notes from the Dallas Arboretum Field Trials for this caladium state "This variety really pops in the shade. Striking glossy red that puts on a show."

Why Grow Caladiums?

  • Bold splashes of color and fabulous patterns in shady areas; many tolerate full sun, too
  • Fast growing brilliance for months
  • Great mixers for vibrant containers or a basket, as shown here, hung on the garage side door
Our giant caladium bulbs have been de-eyed, which sounds like a cruel and painful process, but it's not. We pay our grower a little extra to trim the largest eye(s) on each bulb so the all the secondary eyes can grow unobstructed. The result is a fuller, more uniform plant that looks better throughout the season.
