Some white caladiums suffer from burn or become stressed-looking, but this new beauty keeps its fresh, ghostly appearance all season. Bred by University of Florida for superior use in small containers, Caladium 'Moonlight' offers splendid long-lasting color with well-defined highlights on bushy, vigorous plants.
Each angular heart-shaped leaf on this plant is pure white, with a very thin dark green edge and spidery green minor veins. Down the midrib is a ribbon of brilliant magenta-purple, just to keep things interesting. Well-layered, robust, and full, this is a showpiece of a caladium.
