Debra...great buy! If you haven't noticed already, Caladiums are one of my favorites!

Susan...I've actually planted them as early as February and as late as July. Doesn't matter as the warmer the earth is, the faster they'll come up. I usually have growing into October/November.

We can usually plant caladiums here around mothers day and they hold out until about November or the first frost. I never dig them up and over winter them but left one in a pot of asparagus fern one year and the following spring got a great surprise cause it popped right up when the hot weather arrived. Hurray!
