Product Description

Tapestry has so many merits that we think it will become the "Caladium of choice" for anyone looking for a large, vigorous, sun-tolerant variety for garden or container. What good luck that in addition to all its good growing points, it's also beautifully tri-colored! The offspring of two well-known varieties -- White Christmas and Red Flash -- Tapestry comes by its many strengths honestly! First, it sprouts several days earlier than most others. Then it grows quickly and robustly to at least 22 inches high, with leaves a foot long and about 7 inches wide. Even the bulbs are bigger on this newcomer! But the best part is, of course, the lovely display Tapestry makes. Each heart-shaped leaf sports rosy-red veins radiating out from a central midrib, generous dark green edging, and plenty of white spots and blotches in between. No two leaves will be identical, but all will be lush, substantial, and very sun-tolerant. Bred by the University of Florida, Tapestry can hold its own in full sunshine in the north, partial shade south and west. You will love the architecture it gives to bed, border, and container! Fancy leafed Caladiums are very showy foliage plants with bright red, pink, green and white variegated leaves. You'll enjoy these South American beauties with heart shaped, rainbow colored leaves...prettier than most flowers. Pot early indoors with a starting temperature of 70 F or more, then plant them, pot and all, outdoors in the shade or semi-shade after spring frosts. Or, plant them in shady window boxes where sun loving annuals won't grow. Water well and spray leaves frequently during hot, dry weather. Excellent for conservatory or warm sun porch during winter.
