The scoop on Caladium White Queen

This tall caladium sports large white leaves with striking rose veins and has a colorful history to match. Developed by a postman from Tampa in the 1930s, this caladium represents some of the key genetics from which so many other fancy leaf caladiums have been created. Snap up a little bit of history; it's a terrific garden plant! Note: when planted in acid soil or when over fertilized the white foliage of this caladium takes on a pink cast.

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. A quick hand trimming of the central eye on the bulb allows all the other eyes to grow freely. A fuller, more balanced plant is the result of this extra step.
