The scoop on Caladium Desert Sunset

Desert Sunset was introduced in 2015 and represents a novel color pattern for home landscapes. The broad, heart-shaped foliage is salmon pink with copper veining. This caladium can tolerate full sun, and grows and colors up well, in half day sunlight. Pair this beauty with partners that sport purple or black foliage for an arresting combination.

Why Grow Caladiums?

  • Bold splashes of color and fabulous patterns in shady areas
  • Fast growing brilliance for months
  • Great mixers for vibrant containers
Our giant caladium bulbs have been de-eyed, which sounds like a cruel and painful process; not so. We pay our grower a little extra to hand 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.
