The scoop on Caladium Wild Fire

Another of the new fancy leaf caladiums just developed by one of America's premiere caladium growers, Wild Fire is a vivid red, green and white medley that seems to dance right before your eyes. Nothing flat or boring about Wild Fire. Just the right size for use in containers, you may want to start this variety inside (as is an option for any of the others here) because it takes 2-3 more weeks to wake up and sprout in the spring.

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.
  • Dazzling foliage adds a blast of color all season, sometimes even upstaging blooming partners
  • Manages high heat and humidity nicely
  • Low maintenance

Our giant caladium bulbs are grower's grade "Jumbo", which are larger than either the commonly sold "#1" size or the pretty darn small "#2" size. Bigger bulbs produce bigger, fuller caladium plants.
