Region

When to Plant

Sun or Shade

Containers or in the garden

NW & NE United States & Canada

Early summer

Full sun - light shade.

Caladiums do best in containers in this part of the country and usually need to be in a protected warm location for best results. Like a sunroom or warm patio setting. If growing outdoors select the warmest protected locations in the garden.

SW United States

Spring

shade to light shade only

Containers may be easiest but a shady, cool garden spot can also be lovely. Watch your watering to keep the plants from drying out. 

Midwest

Late Spring

Light shade

Containers are likely best, but a late spring planting into a protected shade flower bed will also be fine.

SE United States

Spring

Shade to sun

Both containers and garden plantings work fine, in the deep south Caladiums may even come back the following year if kept dry over the winter.
