 Caladium bicolor
Family: Araceae
Caladium, Fancy Leaved Caladium
Origin: South America
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftFull sunRegular waterModerate waterOrnamental foliageSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Caladiums are tuber-rooted tropical perennials grown for their large and showy leaves. Caladiums have no stems; the leaves are borne on long leaf stems that arise directly from the underground tuber. The caladium inflorescence (flower) is normally about 9 inches long with a greenish white spadix and spathee (the fleshy upright spike and "bloom"). The many cultivars of caladium were developed from the wild Caladium bicolor that grows naturally in tropical South American forests that have pronounced wet and dry seasons. Outdoors, caladiums should be planted in well drained, humus rich soil with a slightly acid pH. Successful gardeners dig the tubers in autumn and store in a cool 55-60F, dry place until replanting 4-5 months later in spring. Caladiums need lots of water during their growing season. Water them 2 or 3 times a week. They do poorly in dry climates. The dormant tubers, however, must be kept dry. Caladiums are propagated by division of the tubers. Tubers should be cut into pieces with at least two buds each in spring, at the end of the dormant period just before they are replanted. Caladiums also can be grown from seed, but these may or may not produce plants like the parent.

The leaves have a large variety of shapes, sizes and color mixture variations. At least one thousand named Caladium cultivars exist, mostly with lance or heart shaped leaves. The majority you today are hybridized forms and are grown in Florida where there are farms that grow nothing other than caladiums.

Caladium rubicundrum - rare evergreen species with 20-30" leaves. See "Caladium festival in Lake Placid" .

Caladium lindenii, Xanthosoma lindenii Magnifica, Angel's Wing

Click to see full-size image Caladium lindenii, Xanthosoma lindenii Magnifica
Family: Araceae
Angel's Wing
Origin: Colombia
Small shrub 2-5 ftSemi-shadeRegular waterOrnamental foliage

An improved form of lindenii differing by having its yellowish to deep-green leaves, beautiful and broadly veined with a cream to white color , and pale line just inside of the margin. This is an ornamental, evergreen herb, which grows from rhizome with its showy arrow-shaped, thin-leathery leaves. This plant produces tubers and loses most of its leaves when it goes dormant. Plant does good in a mixture containing a large percentage of peat moss while still allowing water to drain well. Any exposure to cold might be fatal.

Family: Araceae
Caladium
Origin: South America
Small shrub 2-5 ftSemi-shadeRegular waterWhite/off-white flowersOrnamental foliageFlood tolerant

The leaves of this species may be completely green, or they may be spotted. It was observed that the variegated leaf zones strongly resemble recent damages caused by mining larvae and therefore may mimic an attack by moth larvae. Moths mistake variegated leaves for already-infested ones and avoid laying eggs there.

Zamioculcas zamiifolia, Caladium zamiaefolium, Zamioculcas lanceolata, Zamioculcas loddigesii, Aroid Palm, ZZ Plant

Click to see full-size image Zamioculcas zamiifolia, Caladium zamiaefolium, Zamioculcas lanceolata, Zamioculcas loddigesii
Family: Araceae
Aroid Palm, ZZ Plant
Origin: Tanzania, Zanzibar
Small shrub 2-5 ftSemi-shadeModerate waterOrnamental foliageSeaside, salt tolerant plant

An ancient relic, along with Gonatopus, with a unique characteristic (for Aroids) in that the leaflet can fall to the ground, root and form bulblets. This feature is not known in aroids outside of the Zamioculcadeae. It has strong, shiny elliptical leaves which are like tall, green feathers growing out of the pot, which give it a distinctly quirky appearance. The stalks are fleshy. Tolerates low water, low light and a degree of neglect which make it a fine houseplant. Easy to look after, it prefers to be too dry rather than too wet, so water sparingly. A sign of overwatering is if the lower leaves turn yellow. Zamioculcas has been made available for cultivation to a wider public only some years ago (around 1996) by Dutch nurseries.
