Caladiums are tuber-rooted tropical perennials grown for their large and showy leaves. Caladiums have no stems; the leaves are borne on long, 6-12, petioles (leaf stems) that arise directly from the underground tuber. The petioles are attached to the leaves near the center, rather than at one end, a condition called peltate. Leaf shape, size and color vary among the hundreds of selections, but most are heart; lance or arrowhead shaped, 6-14 in long, and variously spotted or streaked with pink, red, gray, or white. The caladium inflorescence is a 9 in greenish white Jack-in-the-pulpit-like spadix and spathe. (The spadix is the fleshy upright spike with tiny flowers on it - Jack; and the spathe is the hood-like bract that surrounds the spadix - the pulpit.) Small white berries eventually develop on the spadix. The whole plant, by the end of its growing season, is about 2 ft tall and 2 ft.  wide.
