CALADIUM FAMILY (Araceae) of Plants
Caladiums are sometimes called "Angel Wings". While they have blooms, they are raised primarily for the beautiful foliage.

All parts of the Caladium plant are Poisonous. Ingestion can cause severe irritation to the mouth and throat and may also be an irritant to the Gastrointestinal tract. The Elephant Ear bulb is also called "Taro Root" which can be cooked and is much like potato (only I think better flavor). Needless to say "Do not eat raw" and do not eat the leaves. They contain Oxalic acid and can be dangerous to your health.

Caladiums are biennials (they come back each year), grow from tubers and grow well in low light. Most you will find are hybrids

Caladiums have very thin, heart shaped leaves (looking somewhat like a pair of angels wings). There is a range of leaf colors and patterns, from white with green veins, green with red veins, some almost transparent with green, pink, red and white, being the combinations of colors of the leaves.

The clumps of tuber may be split when repotting in spring. Caladiums are subject to attack by aphids, mealybugs, red spiders, scale and thrips.

Caladiums are used for border plants in gardens and on commercial locations. They require relatively little care and are lovely to plant in banks of the same or mixed colors.
