My caladiums were beautiful and easy to maintain, perhaps the best things I planted this year. Once the soil warmed they sprouted quickly, and looked great all summer. They worked well in my flower beds and containers.
Wendy M - Redding, CT - on December 09, 2020
First time planting caladiums and was not disappointed. The Florida Cardinal is a beautiful plant that didn't disappoint.
Mary Lou J - Timonium, MD - on December 09, 2020
A beautiful grouping of colors in my shade garden this summer. We've had many people comment on how wonderful they look.
Karen H - Louisville, KY - on December 09, 2020
I was so pleased that in their first year they came out so strong and sturdy. They are a nice "filler" for your landscaping.
Marion F M - Seminole, FL - on December 09, 2020
They were very beautiful and colorful in my wooded garden. They lasted the whole summer and are just now beginning to fade. I had many compliments on them.
Joanne D - Wrightstown, NJ - on December 09, 2020
Like all bulbs and flowers that I have purchased from Longfield Garden's, the Florida Cardinal Caladiums were outstanding. I planted the Caladiums in containers and was absolutely surprised to see that in two of the three containers, the Caladiums bloomed. Wish I could share more than one photo of the Caladiums You have a life-long customer, thank you.
Kay L. - Raleigh, NC - on December 09, 2020
These caladiums are beautiful! I planted in several locations and wasn't disappointed; they were healthy and grew in shade and part shade. The color pattern was really pretty and they looked great in containers and in beds. I highly recommend it.
Gail F - Port St Lucie, FL - on December 09, 2020
Every single bulb sprouted and grew awesome Caladiums! They are big and beautiful! I definitely will be ordering more as I want my front garden filled with them!
Mary F. - Elmhurst, IL - on December 09, 2020
These caladiums turned out great. I waited till the ground was warm and planted them directly in the garden. I have a lot of share on one side of the garden and Florida Cardinal really provided a lot of color among my hostas. They were also much hardier than expected. We had a very dry summer and they held up very well.
