This caladium is incredibly easy to grow, and delivers impact in the shade like few plants can. With huge, bright leaves, it produces a pop of color that looks tropical, wherever its planted. White Queen is a reliable variety that sports distinctive white leaves with reddish veins and just a hint of green, giving the foliage a hand-painted effect. A taller caladium, standing 18-24" tall, it looks stunning when planted alongside shorter varieties with red or pink foliage, or annual impatiens. Produces 30-35 heart-shaped leaves that will add texture to your garden summer through frost. You can grow Caladium in any region as an indoor plant, but take care to only start outdoors once nighttime temperatures are high 60's and above, start indoors if you need them sooner. This tropical bulb needs to be lifted in the fall in the north, but stores easily in a dry spot that is protected from frost. Caladium 'White Queen'
