A Blooming Caladium

I recently posted about my caladiums.  How it's all about the leaves.  Then, what do I find?  A bloom!  I'm not sure I've ever had a caladium bloom for me before.  I must have them in a good spot.


  1. Wow, I think I saw mine bloom many years ago too. But not in a long time !

  2. I love much color, so many varieties.

  3. How funny ~ that is a really cute little bloom! Thanks for sharing with us. I hope you are enjoying the weekend.

    I wonder what triggers a bloom?

    They're great, aren't they?

    I thought it was a really tall leaf until it opened.

    Amazing isn't it?


  5. Dear Sherlock Street, I should be more than happy with such pretty leaves but as I have never kept anything so exotic alive for more than five minutes, the whole idea of leaves or flowers is completely academic.

    Caladiums are pretty easy. They die back in the winter and one can dig out the bulbs to store replanting them in the spring. I have done that in years past but bought new ones this year!
