As Spring approaches, it is time to think about Caladiums. They have a place in every garden, and if you are not growing them, you are missing out on a Florida classic. Although this garden gem is not native to Florida, 99% of the these foliage plants are grown in Southern Florida. Caladiums grow year-round in the unique weather patterns, and unusual soils found in Florida garden zone 10. Participants will learn about the history of caladiums and how to grow them in the Sunshine State and up north. These versatile plants can be grown in container, as groundcover, or used in arrangements, and we will highlight the best varieties for each option. All participants will receive caladium tubers. Class will be held at the Garden Council Building, located across the street from the Edison and Ford parking lot (on Larchmont). Advance registration is required. Register online at edisonford.org.
