Caladium bicolour ( Angel's Wings)

The Angel's Wings or Caladium bicolour is a highly demanded tropical foliage plant for its gorgeous colours and rich patterning of their large and thin leaves. The leaves are heart-shaped appearing like " Elephant ears". One interesting characteristic of the plant is the state of dormancy which the tubers go through. The example I have here is one of the many varieties of cultivars. The arrow head- shaped leaves have a beautiful combination of green and white colours.
