Buck 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. Buck is very similar to John Peed. It is an old, very hearty caladium variety that is considered medium to short in height (1-1.5 ft). Buck caladium bulbs are tropical foliage plants that are easy to grow in landscaping, pots and planters. Buck caladiums have medium sized leaves with dark red centers, dark red veins and a wide fern green margin. 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.
