Scarlet Beauty is a red Fancy Leaf caladium variety. These shade to partial sun loving caladium bulbs or tubers are great for adding easy color to your late spring and summer plantings. Scarlet Beauty is a variety that has been around for years. It is considered medium in height (1.5 – 2 ft). Scarlet Beauty caladium bulbs are tropical foliage plants that are easy to grow in landscaping, pots and planters. Scarlet Beauty is a spectacular variety that is dramatic and showy and often overlooked by customers. These caladiums have very large leaves with big dark scarlet blotches, dark red veins and undefined green margins. The second and third years for Scarlet Beauty often result in waxy looking leaves that are slightly lighter in color. Scarlet Beauty adds contrast behind low growing foliage or other shorter caladiums. Caladium bulbs originated in the Amazon Basin, which is why they require and thrive in the warm summer day and night temperatures. Caladiums are from the Araceae family and mix well with other annuals, Hosta’s, ferns, and foliage.
