About Burning Heart - Caladium Bulbs

Caladium hortulanem

Seed Type Bulb

As a bronze, fancy leaf variety, Proven Winners® Burning Heart Caladium Bulbs make a sensational addition to your landscape! In a completely new color for caladiums, Burning Heart leaves appear differently depending on the amount of sun they receive. In shade, they appear rust colored, while during those times of the day that the leaves receive more sunlight, they turn a brighter red. Either way, Burning Heart Caladiums offers large and showy speckled leaves that create a dramatic statement in the garden or patio container!
