Description

Spots and stripes all in one outfit is a daring combo, but this confident Caladium 'Cranberry Star' pulls it off perfectly. This arty number throws out large, white heart-shaped leaves which act as the ideal canvas to show off the green spark of veins and cranberry-red flecks. Tolerant to lower light levels, use this tropical plant to highlight the shadier parts of your garden, or watch it burst into life in your home as a contemporary house plant.

Tropical Caladium 'Cranberry Star' like a little warmth to get started in spring, then once summer kicks in they’ll put on their best show when grown in a shaded position where they’ll grow a generous clump of leaves which remain fresh and vibrant throughout the season. With outlandish, right-on-trend appeal, this exotic plant is well suited to a modern garden, tropical planting scheme or as an unusual gem nestled in amongst your garden regulars!

Our Caladium bulbs are cultivated in Florida, USA
