Finding the perfect plant parent
The Sweetheart is a stunning rare variety of the Caladium family. Its intense pink heart-shaped leaves and veins are framed by deep green edges to make a truly photogenic plant. heir frilly leaves light up in the sunlight. Caladiums are bulbs which produce leaves from Spring to Autumn, so expect total leaf fall in Autumn.
Mix & Match
Mix and match multi coloured caladiums for greater impact. They’ll bring a pop of colour against any background.
The caladium originates from the tropical forests of Central & South America, where they have wet and dry seasons. Being a bulb, this plant goes dormant during the dry season which for us is Autumn through to Spring, so you can hold off watering during this time. Their large arrow / heart shaped leaves make for eye-catching ornamental pieces and can be seen with varying patterns of white, red and pink. A true show stopper of a plant!
