Elephant ears and caladium, Georgia style

These are the elephant ears that I'm digging up, and about eighty zillion caladium bulbs. I'm blaming Lowe's for all of them, and their 90% off clearance sale in April!

That's a perfect look! Clearance has never looked better. Yours have grown better than many of the full price bulbs I pick up :)

Well planted - very nice! Hope it goes well with the storage!

That is lovely. Just goes to show you that simple is often best.

I once read in Southern Living Magazine, the following advice: "If you grow something that does really well this year, plant more of it next year". Good advice.

Thanks, everybody. The bulbs were kind of an after thought. I usually have red impatiens in front of the fence, but with that awful virus going around, I didn't want to plant them again. I actually went to Lowe's for some pavers, and the cashier (who sees a LOT of me, I must say) said, "Need any bulbs?" No, I replied, I'm finished planting those for the year. "They're 90% off."
"I better get a wagon."

They're gorgeous- well worth the time to store them for next year.
