      Hi, Mark! The Caladium Queen, huh? Wow. It'll be hard to garden in a crown, though. And it most certainly is non-green foliage!

      Oh, I'll bet that's pretty, SallyAnne. Where do you garden?

      What a beautiful plant hiding from the sun.

      Thought I'd take a peek at your photos too. I particularly like this one. Caladiums are really tough here in Maine. You have really luxuriant ones. And you caught them so well in this photo. I can see others agree with me. Do they take a lot of water in your area?

      Hi, N.Houlihan. Thank you! I'm so glad you stopped by. Glad you like the caladiums. Strangely, they don't take a great deal of water. Most of their nourishment comes from their tubers and as long as they're in decent, moist soil and in a sheltered location, they don't require much at all.
