Description

Plant a Caladium 'Poecile Anglais' bulb and prepare to fall in love with those lavish red-blotched leaves! This flame from Florida is truly a tropical delight and fascinating to grow, each heart-shaped leaf unfurling an intense colour contrast of crimson and green. Caladium 'Poecile Anglais' needs warm temperatures to thrive which is why it does so well as a house plant. But with caladiums, you can enjoy the best of both worlds by starting them as houseplants in spring and then letting them loose in the garden for summer once the weather is warm. Outside, it likes to be in a shady, secluded spot where it will provide not only vibrant colour but also a cool jungle vibe to dimly-lit nooks or a shady seating area.

If you like to learn from growing new and unusual plants then you will enjoy giving Caladium 'Poecile Anglais' a try. They’re easy and fun to grow, and providing they’re started indoors in warm conditions they are reliable, rewarding you with an incredibly long season of interest. With its colourful leaves, Caladium 'Poecile Anglais' is just as vibrant as any flowering plant and its exotic appearance makes it a real talking point.

Our Caladium 'Poecile Anglais' bulbs are cultivated in Florida, USA
