Caladiums in Georgia

Posted by prettypetals GA 7 (My Page) on

I was wondering if you could leave caladiums in the ground here in NW Ga.? I did not want to buy them if they weren't going to come back. Any help would be appreciated. Judy

I've had caladium for about three years and no, mine have not come back. I've had to replant every year. You might be able to dig up your bulbs and save them through the winter, but I've never done that. I just know that if I want them interspersed throughout my ferns, I'll have to replant.

Mine comes back every year and I live is southwest Atlanta

RE: Caladiums in Georgia

Thanks you guys, I think I will try a couple and just see how they do. Maybe some are more hardy than others and i'm sure how much protection they get might help in them returning the next year. I really didn't want to dig them up. Thanks again, Judy
