(Angel Wings, Mrs. W.B. Haldeman Caladium, W.B. Haldeman Caladium)

Caladium is a tuberous tropical perennial grown for its large colorful leaves. The pretty 'W.B. Haldeman' has heart-shaped leaves of bright pink with a green edge. This "fancy leaf" selection is best kept out of direct, hot sunlight for best foliage.
