Caladium bulbs

pippi21(Z7 Silver Spring, Md.)September 2, 2010

A gardening friend has two pots of the most beautiful and colorful caladiums on her deck which gets a lot of shade and only filtered light. Can you order these bulbs from a catalog or buy locally? I really don't have many places that I think they would grow but there is one place that would get morning sun and I could plant in a patio container under the shade of a dogwood tree. Is there one company that specializes in this plant bulbs? Do you have to dig them up in the winter before frost like dahlias?

There are many companies that specialize in Caladiums, google them out (click the link)... most of them in Florida. Yes in your zone you have to dig them out and store at a dry place..
