A Blooming Christmas Caladium

Back in September, during Becky’s ‘In the Pink’ Square in September photo challenge, I shared a photo of my gorgeous pink (and green) caladium (see this post). Sadly though, the photo was taken from my archives because I believed I’d killed the plant.

But here we are, more than four months down the track, and it’s hard to remember this was a tuber planted in the ground in the hopes it was still alive.

Look at these lovely Christmas colours 🎄

This is my next entry in my Christmas Time Square as part of Becky’s ‘Time’ Square in December photo challenge.

This stunning plant (that belongs to the same family as the Anthurium, Calla Lilly, Peace Lilly and Philodendrons) looks so healthy.

It’s approx. three feet tall, and three feet wide

It’s loving the position it’s in now, planted in the ground, in a little (developing) understory beneath one of my golden cane palms.  It loves this area of the garden so much, it’s blooming.

This flower is aged – see the brown spot on the lower left side of the brat.

I’m so glad I found it when I did, it’s been there for a little while.

And so, for my friend Fran who said she’d never seen a flower on a caladium, here’s a close-up 🙂

That’s all it takes for me to name this my Blooming Christmas Caladium.
