Description

Can you name many other plants that feature almost entirely white leaves? No, we can’t either – we could name plenty with white flowers, but we’ve never seen anything quite like the striking Caladium 'Candidum'. The angular leaves are white as snow, cut through with a delicate tracery of deep green veining, creating an extraordinary effect that will catch the eye of any visitor to your garden. Favouring a shady spot, Caladium 'Candidum' will illuminate even the gloomiest corner of your plot, with architectural leaves that glow bright and white against the surrounding foliage.

Perfect to provide high contrast in lush-leaved foliage scheme, or even making a big statement as a stylish houseplant – just ensure that this tropical treat has the moisture and warmth it needs to really thrive – and you’ll be rewarded with a spectacular display.

Our Caladium bulbs are cultivated in Florida, USA
