Southern Gardening: Caladiums bring color into shady landscapes
Shade is an asset during summer’s triple-digit temperatures, but you may find a shady spot in the landscape that needs a pop of color.
If you have shade that is more dark than inviting, consider growing caladium. Caladium should be at the top of your list of shade-loving plants.
Caladiums are tropical foliage plants, native to the Amazon basin of Brazil. These plants are also right at home in our Mississippi gardens and landscapes. They are perfect for planting in front of the green background of foundation shrubs.
