Prized for its highly decorative leaves, Caladium 'Candidum' (Angel Wings) is a tuberous perennial with lush, heart-shaped, white leaves adorned with striking dark green veins. Inconspicuous, calla-type flowers appear in summer, but they are usually hidden by the leaves. Glowing in full shade, this luminous foliage plant is terrific to add color and drama to shady borders and containers. It also makes an excellent houseplant.

  • Grows up to 12-18 in. high and wide (30-45 cm).
  • Performs best in part shade to full shade, in humusy, moist, well-drained soils. Avoid direct sun or the leaves may scorch. Provide regular moisture and do not allow soils to dry out.
    Excellent in shaded beds and borders or containers.

• Generally disease and pest free, this plant requires little maintenance. Watch for slugs and snails.

  • Tubers may be left in the ground in mild winter climates (USDA Zones 9-11). In colder areas, dig the tubers in fall before the first frost and store them in a cool, dry place over winter.
  • To be planted in spring. Caladiums require warm soil to emerge and thrive.
  • Harmful if eaten, skin and eye irritant. Wear gloves and other protective equipment when handling.
