General Description

Red Frill caladium is a tender tropical perennial plant grown from tubers. This plant is grown for its narrow, showy, variegated, colorful leaves that are dark red with a green undulating margin. This cultivar is sun tolerant.

Grow in part sun to part shade in fertile moist well-drained soil. Use as a bedding plant, grown in containers or used as a filler in mixed plantings. Red Frill's small stature makes it nice for use in hanging baskets. May be grown in the ground all year in tropical climates. Elsewhere dig tubers when leaves dieback in the fall and store or pot up and bring indoors to grow during winter.
