Carolyn Whorton is a pink Fancy Leaf caladium variety. These shade to full sun loving caladium bulbs or tubers are great for adding easy color to your late spring and summer plantings. Carolyn Whorton is an old, very hearty caladium variety that is considered tall in height (2 -2.5 ft). Carolyn Whorton caladium bulbs are tropical foliage plants that are easy to grow in landscaping, pots and planters. Carolyn Whorton caladiums have very large leaves with large, bright pink blotches, red veins, and green mottling. Carolyn Whorton is a customer favorite because of its extreme size and hardiness. They look beautiful and add color and texture behind short foliage, annuals, or shorter caladium varieties of contrasting color. Caladium bulbs originated in the Amazon Basin, which is why they require and thrive in the warm summer day and night temperatures. Caladiums are from the Araceae family and mix well with other annuals, Hosta’s, ferns, and foliage.

*Please note: The plant you will receive may not be identical as the photo if we have more than one in stock. We ship the biggest plants first. We do group plants by their sizes so the plant size will not be much different than on the photos.

Place in a warm, filtered light area away from too much direct sun. Too much hot, direct sun can scorch the leaves.

Soil Moisture: Well drained

Will Tolerate: Acidic Soil, Clay Soil, Loamy Soil, Sandy Soil

Pruning Instructions: None

Winter Care: Lift tubers in the fall and store in a frost-free location over winter. Replant the following spring after last frost.

Planting Depth: 1-2″ deep

Watering Requirements: Average water needs. Water regularly, do not overwater.

Fertilization Requirements: Once per month

Soils with high moisture and adequate drainage are preferred. Caladiums should never sit in dry soil or saturated water. The soil should be moist to the touch and watered frequently. To retain soil moisture, mulch around the plant after the leaves have emerged. These plants are heavy feeders so regularly fertilize them with a soluble fertilizer, for prime foliage growth. Caladiums’ leaves can also burn if fertilizer is applied directly to the leaves, the plants are in direct sunlight, or there is a lack of water.

Enjoy the flourishing leaves of the caladium throughout the spring, summer and fall. As fall temperatures cool, caladium leaves will begin to decline, but are back again the following spring.

Plant origin: North Florida
