Caladium Carolyn Wharton

Caladiums are generally divided into two different types - Fancy and Strap or Lance leaf types. Fancy form have heart-shaped leaves, while Strap forms have narrow foliage.

'Carolyn Wharton' is a fancy-leaved introduction in rose-red. She is a beautiful looking caladium if you ever did see.

Also known as ‘Elephant Ear’ will tolerate morning sun and is considered to be a part shade to shade plant. Caladiums are also generally considered to be houseplants where they prefer bright light or a sunny window. 

It is really important to note that caladiums are perennial tubers and will go dormant in the Wintertime, and re-shoot in the growing season.

They are naturally an understory plant and grow well in dappled shade. The foliage grows on stems which shoot from the tuber.

Love her like we do during the Summer and let her sleep in the Winter. 

Add me to your assorted box of houseplants if you like.

Quick Facts: 

  • What to use me for: Ideal Show-off indoor plant with that pop of colour red to your space.

  • Where to place me: A humus rich moist and well-drained soil is required. All Caladiums are best grown in dappled shade, they can also be grown indoors. However deep shade may restrict colour development. A warm moist position is best. Caladiums are frost-sensitive and require regular application of liquid fertiliser during the growing season.
  • Watering Conditions: Caladiums need to be watered on a regular basis, especially during dry conditions. In fact, watering them on a weekly basis is recommended.
